Product Description

KOTAI Professional Carbon Steel Knife ​blends Japanese precision and craftsmanship with Western sturdiness.

A combination of both worlds offers knives that are razor-sharp, comfortable to work with, extremely durable, and of course, delightfully beautiful.

The “Tsuchime” (hammered) pattern is both aesthetically appealing and highly practical as it creates tiny air pockets between the blade and the food while cutting, thus facilitating food release.

By hand-hammering the steel, it reduces drag while preventing the food from sticking to the edge.

Unparalleled Performance

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Kotai knife
By Amazon Customer on May 24, 2017
My husband moved office to this area where there's no restaurant around only with a canteen with limited food offers; hence I started to pack lunches for him everyday from Jan. I love cooking but have never done it on such a frequent basis, and particularly I dislike chopping things as never had a good knife as I either bought from super market or Ikea, they are never quick enough...
So I decided to buy a new knife and didnt want to spend too much I came on Amazon. And after browsing, I found this little gem since the price is quite reasonable.
After I received it, the store merchant Jeremie got in touch with me and shared with me on the care and how to make the best out of this knife, it was so helpful and I was delighted by such behaviour, never thought could get so much attention by buying a knife at this price.
After using for 5 months now, I have to say it really changed my opinion about chopping, I use Kotai for chopping everything from fruit to meat to veggie to garlic.
My fav. feature of this knife is the special non-stick design, when I chop veggie they come off instead of sticking on the knife making the process smoother and quicker for me.
I feel like a proper home chef using the knife, thank you and I look forward to buy another product from the brand.
May I know where I can find more related products?
Thankssss

5.0 out of 5 stars Best knife I've bought in a while
By Amazon Customer on August 13, 2017
I used to have a Victorinox 20cm chef knife. I still have it at home but I rarely use it anymore. There is nothing wrong with it, but once I started using a really good knife, nothing is quite comparable in terms of sharpness, design and durability.

After years of using my Victorinox I decided it was about time I had an upgrade to a proper professional knife instead of a stamped blade with a cheap plastic handle. Since I cook every day I wanted something that would make cooking enjoyable. I asked around and a colleague told me about the KOTAI knife he had recently bought. He was impressed by the its balanced weight + Japanese high-carbon steel + pakkawood handle and highly recommended it.

I decided to try it out as well and here is my verdict after about a month:

Pros:
- Incredibly sharp out of the box
- Stays sharp despite daily usage
- Well-balanced and lightweight with minimal wrist fatigue
- Thin blade with acute cutting angle, which makes slicing cleanly through food extremely easy
- Looks great, minimalist traditional design but very sturdy at the same time

Cons:
- There is only 1 knife - I wish they had a complete set with a paring knife, a santoku, boning knife etc.
- The steel is very hard, so it takes longer to re-sharpen it. But of course it also means that it doesn’t need to be sharpened as often as other knives.

Overall verdict is that it is beautiful and really well finished. All details look great and cuts through everything without even trying. Absolutely love it and would highly recommend it to other chefs or avid cooks.
