Kanpeki Knife Set
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. Each blade is carefully tapered on one side and hollow ground on the other. 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.

It's time to step up your game
I bought these knives in April. They were delivered at the end June per the marketing at the time. These are very nice knives. The blades are thick with a chiseled edge--meaning that the left side is straight while the right is beveled. The edges are properly sharpened, however you will need to hone them. You hone them with a honing wand. Mine is a 1200 grit ceramic wand. Most stores sell 600 grit steel wands. Although I have a steel wand, I have only used the ceramic wand on these knives. Once honed--be careful--the blade is very sharp. I regularly use the Santoku knife for most of my cutting. I tend to cook vegetarian meals, so I do a lot of chopping. The Santoku knife is excellent at mincing whether garlic, ginger, or jalapeños. I have another Japanese knife with a thinner, traditional duel beveled blade. I find this knife is easier to cut thin slices of onion of the same thickness. The chiseled edge of the Kamikoto knives and the thickness takes a bit more getting used to. The other knife I use a lot is the paring knife or the small utility knife from the Kanpeki set. This knife is a dream. It's a bit weightier than my other paring knives--and that's good. After a few strokes on my honing wand, it quickly dispatches of tomatoes of even the thickest of skins. This is truly a culinary weapon! After nearly 3 months of use, I have yet to sharpen any blade. I will confess also to not putting these knives in my kitchen drawer. They remain hidden in their boxes behind seldom used pots and pans. The other--shall we say--unmentioned family members are not invited to use my newest and favorite kitchen devices. While I believe these knives can stand up to just about anything, I have yet to have them put to the test of my twelve-year-old or my wife. Yes, similar to a BMW M3, while I have thrown them in the corners myself--so to speak, I have yet to let anyone else drive them. The other knives of the Kanpeki set: the vegetable and sushi cutting knives do not get as much use in my kitchen. For vegetables, I prefer the Santoku. That said, the long thin Kanpeki knife is great for cutting raw fish when I do that. So to wrap up, if you are in doubt because of the price, I was too. But I decided to take the plunge. At the discounted price, the knives are well within my price range. I'm very happy that I did. I'm happy with the overall quality and characteristics of the knives. They are different from any knife that I've owned and I am still going through a learning curve. I recommend getting a ceramic honing wand if you don't have one already and hone the blade before each use. Other than that, for this "weekend warrior cook" I'm very happy that I made the purchase. Enjoy!
