Japanese steel for Christmas.
« on: December 27, 2018, 05:35:36 AM »
My wife and her boss teamed up for my Christmas present.   They gave me 4 Kamikoto Japanese single edge high quality knives.  All are single edge, stainless steel, with black wood handles. 
There is a 7 inch Santuko, an 8.5 inch Yanagi slicer, a 5 inch utility knife, and a 7 inch Nakiri vegetable knife.   They will augment and supplement my other kitchen knives.
When I get home, I?ll post a picture.  Still have not figured out how to do that using the iPad I take when traveling.

I did my Googlefu and that's a nice set!

At this time, I just don?t know.  Will be trying to get more info after the first.   I am very curious about the steel.

That's a beautiful set Sam. Congratulations. The one Japanese single edge knife we have works great when preparing and making sushi.

I already had several Japanese knives I bought the last time we were in Japan.  These are more modern,  and work great.
