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.
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 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!
