At 180mm, this knife is as small as gyutos get. It is a good choice for lovers of shorter blades or those with very restricted board space. It is also a great choice for prepping garnishes and other smaller items. This knife will appeal to rock and push cutters alike. It has a nice thin spine that tapers towards the tip and it also exhibits a fairly thin grind behind the edge.
The Kohetsu AS Western Gyuto is made with stainless cladding over a core of Aogami Super steel. AS is regarded as a fantastic carbon steel for kitchen knives. We specified that the steel be hardened to an HRC rating of 64. The stainless cladding protects the blade from corrosion and makes for easy maintenance. The exposed AS steel edge needs to be kept dry but will develop a patina over time which will aid in its protection and add to the great looks of this kitchen workhorse.
The handles feature a full tang style, nicely made out of mahogany wood with three stainless rivets and a stainless bolster.
Kohetsu knives are about bringing you the best cutting performance using the top steels on the market with impeccable heat treatment and nice, thin grinds at an affordable price.
