Product Description

Brilliant monochromatic colors make the Pure Komachi 2 series a real eye-catcher. But all that fun-loving color has a serious purpose too. The color-coding makes it easy to choose the right knife for the job. It also helps guard against cross-contaminating food; for instance, by using the knife you've just used to cut meat on the vegetables. The bold blade color is achieved by bonding food-safe, FDA-approved non-stick coating to high-carbon stainless-steel blades. This non-stick coating resists corrosion, makes cleaning simple, and helps the knife glide through food with ease. The Pure Komachi 2 color-matched handles are lightweight and ergonomically contoured for a comfortable, fatigue-reducing grip. Incredibly sharp and decidedly attention-getting, Pure Komachi 2 knives make a delightful addition to any kitchen. The 8 Piece Set includes: 4-inch Tomato Knife, 4-inch Citrus Knife, 3-1/2-inch Paring Knife, 6-inch Multi Utility Knife, 9-inch Slicing Knife, 6-1/2-inch Santoku Knife, 8-inch Chef's Knife, and 8-inch Bread Knife.

The knives are very sharp.
Since it doesn't come with a block, and we have magnetic utensil strips in our kitchen, I thought these would look great presented on the wall.

I do love to cook and these knives will really impress you in the kitchen!

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I cook a lot, and good sharp knives are essential. Without them, food prep becomes needlessly tedious- so I will spend money on good knives. I already owned a few Komachi 2 knives and I really like them, so I was thrilled to pick this set up.

+ Komachi knives are VERY sharp. They go through almost anything (acorn squash, heavy cheeses, breads, chicken, etc) very easily. Be careful. I mean it. They are really REALLY sharp!
+ Excellent variety of knives (see breakdown below).
+ Brilliant colors. This is ostensibly to help you track which knife cut what but honestly each knife is different so you don't really need the color to help with that. But I love the colors because they add a nice bold splash to my kitchen.
+ Lightweight (both a pro and a con); your hand won't get tired while cutting.
+ Non-stick coating so food doesn't, well, stick.

- Lightweight. There are a FEW things they aren't quite heavy enough to cut easily (butternut squash, mochi, definitely pumpkin or bone). Not much of a con - also a pro! These Japanese style knives are meant to be lightweight.
- Handwashing recommended. Again, not much of a con -- I actually hand wash all my knives, and these clean up lickety split because of their coating.
- This set doesn't come with a block. But it doesn't say it does so I can't downgrade for that.

* 4" tomato/cheese knife (so named because of the prong at the tip for picking up slices) in it's own little holder
* 4" citrus knife in it's own little holder. Serrated blade ostensibly for fruit cutting but I don't totally get the point of this one.
* 3 1/2" paring knife in it's own little holder. I use this one for all small veg chopping/dicing.

I just received the knives a few days ago, so I cannot comment on long-term performance. I like how they perform so far. The knives are very sharp. After years of recklessly gouging and sawing food with dull knives, I will now need to learn to cut properly, out of sheer terror. The knives are lightweight, which is a plus for me, and the handles fit nicely in my small hands.

The vibrant colors do stand out a bit in my neutral kitchen, but I knew about the colors when I ordered the set and cannot complain. Just really think about this if you plan to keep your knives out in plain view.

I read reviews about the size of the clear holder that will accommodate this set of knives and decided it would be too big for my counter top. Plus, the holder seems expensive ordered separately. I know from reading several comments here that some take offense to reviewers pining for items that are not part of the product, but I'll say this anyway - it would be nice if sheaths/stands were provided for each of the knives in the set and not just the smallest knives. There. Just take it as one more plea to the makers to find a more palatable way to hold and display these knives. So many reviewers have essentially said these knives are great, but the holder... Just know that it might take some effort to find a way to store and/or display these sharp, pretty knives.

Amazon's page for this knife set indicates that customers buy this item with MIU France Stainless Steel Magnetic Knife Holder, 20-Inches by MIU France. So did I, but I don't see these two items having a long-lasting relationship. After one day of being mounted on the MIU magnetic holder, there are two faint lines on the backs of each knife exactly where the rim of the holder makes contact with the knives. One day!

This was for a gift. A great knife for a great buy! Holds an edge for quite a while. Sharpens easy and fast. Bought some for myself and everyone who uses them wants at least one for themselves. Only downside is that you cannot use them on frozen foods.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The vivid, luscious and bright colors of these knives scream crayons or candy. They actually resemble the former and latter more than they resemble knives. Never fear however at the end of the day these knives can cut.....very well.

In this set there are eight knives by Komachi:

- 4-inch Tomato Knife
- 4-inch Citrus Knife
- 3-1/2-inch Paring Knife
- 6-inch Multi Utility Knife
- 6-1/2-inch Santoku Knife
- 8-inch Bread Knife
- 8-inch Chef's Knife
- 9-inch Slicing Knife

The knives are also (sort of) color coded, for instance the tomato knife is red and the citrus knife is yellow. As for sharpness, these knives are very, very sharp. I have used them for both vegetables and meat. I cut my cutting (pun intended) time in half. This is mainly due to the ergonomics of the handle and razor-sharp blade slicing takes half the time. I finely chopped a heart of celery very, very quickly and with good precision. I also cut up some raw and cooked chicken and again the accurateness of the blade(s) is amazing.

The maintenance of these knives is minimal:

- Hand wash and dry (it doesn't say not to use the dishwasher but it doesn't say to use it, so I will just hand wash)
- Do not cut anything frozen, meat or other substances
- Do not clean with harsh soaps or coarse cleaning pads

I am very pleased that I own these knives and am very interested in getting the holding case. So I can display these unique but astute kitchen tools. If nothing else having these knives on display are bound to spring up some interesting conversation in the kitchen.
