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; color coding can help to prevent you from using the knife the knife you used to cut meat now on the vegetables. The bold blade color is achieved by bonding food-safe FDA approved resin 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.

This is my first time reviewing something that isn't a book, lol. Anyways, I'm a culinary student and I happened on this knife in Macy's along with some other things I needed. I was skeptical at first because of the price (it was on sale for 7.99) but I had always seen other people in class using knives that look like these (I didn't know what they were called til now) and despite my hatred for pink, I went ahead and bought this knife. I'm writing this review right after using in class for the first time today. I got a few glances, but the knife is very lightweight. The knives in our knife kits are Mercer knives and since they're German they're heavier so it was weird for me to use such a light knife. It felt like a toy knife, but it made it easier to handle. It's a sharp little knife and I hear that it can take to being sharpened. I chopped onions, minced onions, minced garlic, minced cilantro, and peeled and sliced a pineapple.

After class I took it to the chef-instructor, since he had taken notice of the knife during class. He looked it over and said that it was made of quality steel and that since its Japanese, the blade is thinner and easier to maneuver. He said it was good for people with small hands. He told me that it was very good that they now have quality knives mass marketed. All in all it got a good review from him as well. I think I'm going to buy the entire set for at home use.

I was a little leary about buying this knife but I figured if I didn't like it I could give it away. Cooking one of my favorite dishes I decided to give this knife a try. I was amazed just how sharp this knife was, I mean razor sharp and you better know how to handle a knife otherwise you will be loosing fingers. It cut through everyting like butter and shaves razor thin. I'd buy another in a heartbeat, different color. A razor sharp knife.

I just got this in the mail a few hours ago and started using it right away to cut a bunch of vegetables and all I can say is WOW. I didn't think this knife would be so easy to use and so sharp, especially considering the price I paid for it. I own two far more expensive Henckels knives and this little knife is right up there in terms of cutting ability! I was also hesitant on the color when I ordered it but now that I've used it, it actually looks cool! Its not exactly neon pink as the picture might indicate but a softer, lighter shade of maroon or red. The knife is very light so you do have to use a little more energy in cutting harder vegetables (naturally) but so far it has sliced through everything I've thrown at it including onions, bell peppers, carrots, cucumber and a cabbage with ease. I also tried to chop some raw almonds finely for a dessert and it made quick work of that too! The handle is comfortable to hold for my smallish hands and most importantly, does not allow for slipping even when my palms are wet. The blade, although not a conventional shape for a Santoku knife, actually works better for me than the conventional Santoku shape.

I'm thoroughly impressed with this thing- my only hope is that the blade stays sharp as long as my Henckels. There are other reviewers who say this knife gets rusty or loses the colored coating but the instructions on the back of the knife case clearly recommend washing and drying by hand to avoid these problems. It is also not recommended for bone cutting, but that's not why I bought it. For everyday cutting, this thing is going to be perfect for me. If I notice any rusting or peeling of the coating, or see that the blade is loosing edge quickly, I'll make sure to edit my review.

Now, to get back to cutting..!!

Very good quality for the price.
Please remember, though, that this is a Japanese-style knife. That means that yes, of *course* the blade is thin, the knife lightweight! It's supposed to be. If you want heavyweight, buy yourself German steel. But if you appreciate a lighter-weight knife that's superbly easy to handle and use, and slices through everything like it's nothin', then you want this knife.

The thought of taking my $200 Shun knife camping was not attractive so I looked around for a cheaper product that did not compromise on quality. This Pure Komachi was an instant hit with me and every single camp mate that's had the pleasure of using it. No one believed me when I told the what (little) it cost me. I have since bought two other different length Pure Komachis and portable knife guards. I now find it hard pressed to justify paying top dollar for high class knives. The only drawback I can see (yet to test) is that these might be a little too brittle for chopping, twisting and cutting hard items.

I found these knives at the low cost of $5 so I was very skeptical but I thought I'd give them a try. I work as a private chef for 50 people so they get used 40 hours a week and have held up extremely well. The blade is sharp and holds a nice edge. I like how super lightweight they are. I have tiny hands so they are proportioned perfectly for me. After 4 months of heavy use the paint has not chipped or flaked, however I carefully hand wash all my knives and keep them in a knife roll. I would strongly recommend not letting knives this sharp ( or any cutting knife) just bang around in a drawer. I would not recommend using this knife to cut anything hard like butternut squash or to smash garlic cloves but they work just fine for regular vegetable prep and cutting meats with ease. I am concerned that the plastic handle will eventually snap but at the low price I would just pick up another. I use a D ring to keep the edge honed and have used a sharpening stone on them with no ill effects to the enamel. I'm a bit of a girly girl so I like the bright colors when I flip open my roll. The hot pink was super cute. This isn't something to replace my good Santoku with but I'll admit it holds a sharper edge longer so Komachi definitely did something right with their metal blend.

EDIT- After two years of daily use this knife is still working well. I have ground the edge sharp twice ( on a mechanical grinder) and it did mess up the paint slightly. I haven't had a problem with the paint chipping off. The cheap looking handle is holding strong even after being put through a sanitizer at high temperatures a few times a day.
