Miyabi Koh 9.5-inch Chef's Knife is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 73.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great knife - way underrated! This knife (Miyabi Koh 8” gyuto) is fantastic, and way underrated. I mostly use two knives, this one and a small paring knife, and they are sufficient for almost everything. I had no quality issues, so I can’t comment on defects. Mine seems well crafted with good attention to detail (comes with a warranty anyway). The things I love most about this knife is that it is light and nimble, the handle is very comfortable and secure (and in many positions) and it easily slices through everything, even hard winter squash. All other 8+inch chef’s knives that I tried have handles which are too fat/uncomfortable for me, and most blades are needlessly heavy and thick. The stainless steel on this seems great too. It is razor sharp, and after months of daily use cutting lots of winter squash, hard root vegetables, acid fruit, and everything else in sight, it is still super sharp without once touching it up with a honing rod or strop. There were some rocking santokus and prep knives which I considered because they have small handles and are also nimble, but I wanted the versatility of a larger knife for the big squash, melons, and cabbage. The one thing I don’t like about this knife is that the handle is about 1 inch too long (I am petite, so it sometimes hits my forearm). At first I didn’t like the flatter profile either, because it doesn’t rock as well as the knife I was used to. However, after adjusting my cutting style I have had no problems. I can easily mince large bunches of parsley, and I slice, instead of wedge-split, the hard veggies. I think the thinner and narrower blade is one of the reasons it cuts so well. Before purchasing, a sales clerk, whose dad was a butcher, told me he personally owns this knife and loves it. However, a few weeks later another sales clerk tried to talk me out of it. I think because it lacks the “sexy” layers of shiny (but useless) cladding. Some merchants don’t carry this series, and it is left out of online comparisons. Too bad, because its nimbleness, simple elegance and functional excellence make it one of the best knives in my opinion.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Chef knife This is a great traditional style Japanese bread knife. Super lightweight, the Chef knife has a nice balance to it, and it won’t get heavy in your hand if you are slicing fruit, meat, or veggies. The thin yet sharp and durable blade of the FC61 steel of the Koh does a nice job of slicing and cutting easily and smoothly. The Pakkawood handle is more a traditional style for Japanese cutlery, paying homage to the original Japanese knives, samurai swords. The 6” Chef knife is a great blade, still a large blade but not as daunting in size as the 8 or 10” chef blades.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great proportions on this knife This is a classic Japanese knife; the distinctly angled, slightly wooden handle, the super sharp, lightweight blade makes cutting with this knife smooth, and comfortable. The aesthetics of the knife also need to be mentioned. The bright blade in contrast with the darker wood handle is truly beautiful to look at. And for all the exterior benefits, the construction of this knife is compromised. The FC61 steel used in making the blade is strong without being brittle. It takes an edge and keeps it. Hand wash this gorgeous knife. It has a Pakkawood handle.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from just got this knife in the mail and sad to say it has a crack in the handle. I haven't used the knife yet but the weight, shape of handle and edge of the blade all feel good. aside from the defect i like the knife and it seems promising.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Miyabi Koh line is stunning and performs as well as any other Miyabi knife. miyabi knives are known the world-over for their thin blade, super-sharp angle, made from German steel and engineering, yet crafted by Japanese artisans who take great pride in mastering the art of knives! These are all ice-hardened so you know they are sharp and extremely durable. Beautiful handle that contrasts the shiny blade of Koh. I prefer the 6" Chef knife, as it is a bit smaller in my hand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best of both worlds! You get a beautiful combo of German stainless steel and Japanese craftsmanship for a Miyabi knife that lasts a lifetime. The Koh series is made with the Friodur process - ice-hardened for extra sharpness and durability, will remain stain-free and not chip. The Pakkawood handle is super-comfortable and gives a good grip. All are made in Seki, Japan, the previous sword capital of the world. So you know you are getting a great knife with superb quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable and Durable Love my Miyabi Koh chef's knife. Made in Seki Japan, the home of the best Japanese knives. The steel is unique to Miyabi and is not only high on the Rockwell scale, but the carbons in the steel are so fine, that it is almost impossible to damage the blade. The razor edge blade is as sharp as a surgeon's scalpel, very easy to sharpen and maintain. Love the handle design which allows my left handed boyfriend to use with comfort and ease. Affordable and enjoyable!
