Over a thousand years of craftsmanship have inspired the final form of the Kamikoto 神箏 Kanpeki Knife Set. Meticulously handcrafted, each blade features high-quality steel from Honshu 本州, Japan – a steel with high corrosion resistance and durability. The Kanpeki Knife Set is rigorously quality tested to ensure that it meets the distinction and caliber of Kamikoto 神箏.
The Kamikoto 神箏 Kanpeki Knife Set includes one vegetable knife, one slicing knife, and one utility knife to tackle the smaller, more intricate chores in the kitchen. Each knife is precision balanced and weighted for optimal form and long-lasting performance.
The Nakiri vegetable knife is 7 inches long, the slicing knife is 8.5 inches long, and the utility knife is 5 inches long. Kanpeki blades are single bevel 片刃 Kata-ha. Both handle and blade are satin finished to a subtle, yet stunning luster. The Kamikoto 神箏 Kanpeki Knife Set is presented in a natural-colored ash wood box for safe storage and keeping.
I've always been suspect of whether these types of knives will actually be any better than the ones you get in a store. So I tried a couple to see, and I was completely blown away. The balance and sharpness of these knives is nothing short of spectacular. I loved them so much I have now bought additional sets as gifts.
