Over a thousand years of craftsmanship have inspired the final form of the Kamikoto Santoku, a handmade steel blade that will stand the test of time. The Santoku features high-quality steel from Honshu 本州, Japan – a steel with high corrosion resistance and durability. Each blade completes a rigorous quality assurance process, and is tested and retested to ensure it meets the distinction and caliber of Kamikoto 神箏.
The Kamikoto Santoku blade is 7 inches long – a single bevel 片刃 Kata-ha. Both blade and handle are satin finished for a subtle, yet stunning luster. This exquisite knife comes in a natural-colored ash wood box for storage and safekeeping. The Santoku handle is secure with a non-slip surface and is carefully sized to keep your hand from touching the cutting surface. You can tell the quality of Kamikoto 神箏 by the feel it gives you: substantial, yet light; slender, sharp, and fluid. Each knife is precision balanced and weighted for functionality and long-lasting performance. The Kamikoto 神箏 Santoku Chef’s Knife is made for a lifetime of use and excellent handling.
Marvelous craftsmanship. It performs so well that I find myself attempting culinary approaches that I wouldn't have dreamed of trying before using this instrument. This kind of quality has an overflow effect; your entire environment seems improved.
Best knives I've ever owned & they making cooking a joy
Cutting, slicing, chopping are all wonderful experiences with these blades. If you enjoy cooking, you will certainly find these knives are better than any you've ever owned. I bought and use the entire set.
I have yet to use the knife, but it appears to be of high quality. It only took just over two weeks to receive. Unexpectedly I received a second knife the following day with the same order number. I contacted the company and within hours received a really nice reply: Hello Gregory, We have contacted the courier, and are sorting things out with them in order to ensure the intended recipient gets their order.
