Thin, light and graceful, Koutetsu knives are highly prized for their extreme sharpness and edge retention thanks to Takayuki Shibata's skill as a sharpener. They're becoming collectors items these days due to the very limited numbers made so we're always excited when they're available!

(Please note, Kotetsu knives brand name was updated to "Koutetsu" in June 2021)
