We are in the process of updating our website... please bear with us if there are any visual changes. The backend system is still perfectly functional, but the look will be changing.
The Kochi line is an exclusive to Japanese Knife Imports. These knives have a great in-hand feel... not too heavy, but not super light. The yanagiba is very nice and thin and the grind is very nice. The blue #2 steel takes a very good edge and has very nice edge retention too. The octagon burnt chestnut handles are very comfortable and retain grip very well when wet. These are carbon knives, so they will need to be cared for as such. They can rust if left wet and/or dirty and will develop a patina over time. The cladding on these knives are reactive, but not as reactive as many i have seen.
When I began testing this series, I was really impressed with the cutting ability of these knives and how easy they were to sharpen. We are very excited to introduce you to Kochi knives.
