About Left handed 7-Inch Santoku Genten

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 Genten is made for a lifetime of use and excellent handling.

Chef owner of Hersh's
These knives are beautiful. I was a bit skeptical trying them as I love my knife set and research extensively before I add to my collection. As soon as I picked up the nakiri, the weight and balance told me I was going to love it. Anything I cut with the nakiri feels like slicing through soft butter with that wonderful blade.

You can feel the precision and old tradition of knife making simply by holding these knives in your hand. The weight and balance of these knives are perfectly designed as they truly feel like an extension of your hand with each razor sharp cut.

Customer Queries

What is the shipping time?
We allow 24 hours after a client places an order before the order is processed and shipped. Clients have 24 hours to notify our team regarding any changes they wish to make to their order.

We would ask that our clients allow 5 business days for the item to arrive to their home from the time that they receive the shipping confirmation email.
Do the lengths stated in the description refer to the full knife or just the blade?
The dimensions on the product page refer to the length of the blade only.
How do you sharpen the knives?
We recommend that customers invest in Kamikoto’s Toishi Sharpening Whetstone to keep handcrafted knives sharp and ready to cut. The Toishi Sharpening Whetstone sits on a beautiful wooden bamboo stand and features two sides – one with a coarse grit to grind away any roughness, and the other with a fine grit that sharpens and polishes the edge. The finer the grit, the finer the edge on your knife. The sturdy wooden stand holds the whetstone safely in place so you can concentrate on gaining the sharpest edge possible.

Click here to see full set of instructions.
Do you have knives made for left-handed users?
At the moment we only offer knives for right-handed users. However, we are looking into an option for our left-handed clients.
Are the knives dishwasher safe?
Do not place handcrafted knives in the dishwasher. This is because knives and cutlery rub against each other or against other objects during the wash cycle – this can leave scratches, damage the blade or damage the plastic finish on the cutlery basket.
