Kochi 210mm Kurouchi Wa-Petty

  • The Kochi line is exclusive to Japanese Knife Imports.  These knives have a great in-hand feel... not too heavy, but not super light.  Near the spine they seem to be more substantial, however, behind the edge, they 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 v2 steel (carbon steel), with carbon cladding, and thus need to be cared for as such.
