Kochi 180mm Kurouchi Stainless Clad Carbon Wa-Petty

  • 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.  Near the spine they seems to be more substantial, however, behind the edge, the are very thin.  They are awesome cutters.  Near the heel, they have a nice flat spot, and towards the tip, a gentle curve.  The octagon burnt chestnut handles are very comfortable and retain grip very well when wet.  These are clad in stainless, but the core is carbon, so they will need to be cared for as such.  The exposed carbon core can rust if left wet and/or dirty and will develop a patina over time. 

    Though we are not sharing the exact steel, the core steel is a very pure, high carbon steel with a very fine grain structure.  It sharpens very easily and takes an amazing edge.
