Blade & Handle

Ittosai Kotetsu knives made from VG5 steel are renowned for their superior edge retention compared to regular stainless steel while being easier to sharpen than VG10. The fine hammered pattern near the spine not only adds a beautiful aesthetic but also provides excellent food separation, making slicing smoother and more efficient. The handle is designed to fit comfortably in the hand, ensuring precise and safe cutting performance.

Steel Type

VG5 steel sits prominently in the VG series known for its exceptional qualities. It strikes the perfect balance for users who prioritize both edge retention and the ability to re-sharpen their knives easily. With a hardness rating of 58-59 on the Rockwell scale, VG5 steel ensures that Ittosai Kotetsu knives remain sharp for extended periods while still allowing for straightforward sharpening, making them an ideal choice for both professional chefs and home cooks.

About Ittosai Kotetsu

Founded in 1917 by the previous generation's Kusutaro Takahashi, Ittosai Kotetsu was named after "Kotetsu," a renowned swordsmith of the Edo period, and "Ittousai," the founder of the flourishing Ittoryu swordsmanship of the Edo period. Ittosai Kotetsu continues this tradition of excellence, focusing on the delicate balance between achieving peak sharpness and maintaining ease of sharpening in their knives. Each knife is a testament to the brand's dedication to quality, embodying over a century of Japanese craftsmanship and innovation. The Ittosai Kotetsu signature engraved on each knife is a seal of quality and an ode to a legacy that blends the art of traditional sword-making with modern culinary needs.
