Is Kamikoto a Good Brand? 5 Verified Reviews

“Amazing quality and craftsmanship! Orders are processed and shipped within just a day or two and arrive within days! The quality of the knives is amazing and the pricing is unbelievable for such quality. The knives retain their razor-sharp edges even with a lot of use, but are easy to hone with a whetstone, if necessary, to retrieve that factory sharp edge! I highly recommend these knives for their quality and craftsmanship and they are perfect for the home chef/cook as well as any professional master chef!”

“Kamikoto’s products are exceptional. The Japanese knives are some of the best in the business. Sharp, easy to maneuver, comfortable to handle. Customer service is the best I’ve ever received. I am and will always be a dedicated customer. I fully recommend this company and their products.”

“Excellent and superior quality products. I enjoy the sharp balanced edge that provides effortless work.”

“It is without hesitation that I say Kamikoto knives are the best knives you can purchase. Whether you are a home chef or work in a professional kitchen, these knives will greatly enhance your culinary experience; you will never want another brand again. I have found their customer service to be outstanding and responsive and I will remain a loyal customer for life!”

“I’ve always been fascinated with traditional Japanese swords and sword-makers, so I naturally gravitated towards Kamikoto products which are steeped in the same traditions. These are the most amazingly sharp knives I’ve ever seen, and I have no doubt they are capable of splitting atoms! I now own two complete sets of knives (the entire line), plus many extra knives that I give away to friends and family, who are equally amazed at the quality, sharpness, and presentation… the little wooden boxes are a great touch. Plus their customer service is second to none; I’ve done lots of online shopping, and no company I’ve ever dealt with can even come close to the professionalism, courteousness, and generosity that Kamikoto exhibits on a regular basis. So whether you’re a weekend warrior in the kitchen like myself, or a professional chef in a 5-Star restaurant, you can always depend on Kamikoto knives… there’s nothing sharper.”

Have owned and subsequently added Kamikoto knives to my collection for years. I love them because they are well balanced in terms of weight and really sharp. As with all quality knives, it is important to look after them both in terms of careful hand washing and regularly sharpening them using a whetstone. I highly recommend.

I bought two sets of knives and a whetstone and I must say I am truly impressed with the quality, design, simplicity and beauty of these knives. They were not only a perfect addition to our kitchen, they have now become an elemental instrument in it. Couldn‘t be happier!

I bought kamikoto knives for my father’s birthday quite a while ago. He was always saying how he would love a set of japanese knives. Now he can’t stop cooking, he loves the feel of the knives, and can’t stop showing us how sharp they still are.

I give 5/5 for customer service, 4/5 for delivery but the company can’t really be blamed for that (covid delays), 5/5 for sharpness and 1/5 for all the paper and tomatoes my father wasted showing off his knives.

Definitely will buy again for someone else’s birthday

My journey with Kamikoto started a few years back.

My wife purchased a 7-Inch Santoku Ganjo for me as a gift. It is still a cherished blade and used very often. Durable, sharp and elegant.
What’s most impressive is how good it feels in my hand. The bamboo handle is designed perfectly for my grip and even after several hours of use does not cause fatigue. The blade itself is very durable and remains very sharp with normal maintenance and sharpening practices.

I have amassed a collection of 10 Kamikoto blades at this point. My favorites being of course the original and my Kamikoto Kuro Series Knife Set Everything I have experienced with Kamikoto has been quality and exceptional customer service. I recommend these tools very highly.

These are well balanced and superbly crafted knives. They are very sharp and pleasant to work with. The knives make preparation of food a delight and can’t wait to head into the kitchen and start my day.

Their support is fantastic if you run into any issues. They stood by their quality and their response is fast and sincere. Dealing with Mr Tsuyoshi Inagaki is a very pleasant experience. Thank you Kamikoto, for these beautiful knives that deliver breaths of freshness to my kitchen.
