Kamikoto Knives Review

My experience using Kamikoto Knives and other products!

Hi, everyone! When I first started this blog of mine, I used to give a lot of tips and tricks from working in the restaurant industry. While I still do that in all of my recipes such as cooking techniques, I haven’t touched on utensils and products in a while.

This is a sponsored review post on behalf of Kamikoto. All opinions are 100% my own. This post may contain affiliate links.

To me, the MOST important tool to have in the kitchen is a one good quality knife. Or, at least one good quality knife that is your go-to.

While this is the case, I’m kind of embarrassed to say that I have been working with a knife kit I’ve had since college. I went to Johnson & Wales and got my Associates degree in Culinary Arts.

Along with the tuition, you get a set of knives and I have been rocking that set ever since! Some ahem… 10ish (…12ish?) years ago.

Needless to say, I have been in need of a really good knife set. And, lucky for me Kamikoto contacted me asking for a review. I immediately jumped at the chance because you just can’t get better knives than Japanese steel, in my opinion.

They sent me the Kanpeki Knife set which includes a vegetable knife, a slicing knife, and a utility knife. I have been using them for a couple weeks and I am extremely happy with them.

My favorite one is the larger slicing knife. I am used to working with this style knife because that is all we had at an Asian restaurant I worked at for many years.

It is very versatile even though it is on the larger side.

I also received this floating knife block that is for display. It is made of beech wood and has a magnet inside that you can easily store the knives on. Plus, it looks pretty cool if you ask me!


They also sent the sharpening whetstone. I used this allllll the time at work as well.

I have not needed to use it yet, so I can’t say if I recommend this product. It looks and feels very high quality and they have directions with it on how to use which comes in handy.

The knives themselves are so sharp, I haven’t had to sharpen them yet!



The three-piece knife kit also comes in this beautiful wooden box. I think this would be a wonderful gift to give! Christmas, anyone??

I gave the Kanpeki Knife Set to my Mom for her last birthday and she still raves about them!

  1. Thanks for the review! Was looking to purchase the Kanpeki set for my husband for his first Father’s Day! He is a knife connoisseur (and I have not been kind to his Wustofs ??) would love to win the chefs knife!

  2. It’s got to be the vegetable knife. One of the things I learned growing up was that to test how sharp your knife was, try cutting through tomato skin or onion skin and that will tell you if you need to keep sharpening it. I love onions so I’m constantly cutting up some.

  3. I have been using the 7″ Santorum knife and really like it. Very sharp and good balance. Ranks up there with my Wusthofs.

  4. I don’t get it… When I Googled it it said Amazon sells this set for $1295 dollars, when I read the reviews.. It said it is not from Japan, It is from China.
    The Kamikoto Company Website will sell this set for $ 265 with code 77Off.
    Ebay offers from $350 to $500..
    Buyer Beware… Do the research
