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.

Attempting to sharpen these knives as I do my personal knives was an exercise in futility. The blades on the "Pure Komachi" line knives is pure garbage. Five passes with my sharpening stones loaded them up with so much steel I had to wash the stones out before attempting to proceed. Looking at the blade's edge there was nothing but residue steel along the edge. Checking further I found the edge grind was less than 15 degrees on one side and more than 40 degrees on the opposite side. These are not serious cutting tools at any cost.
If you own these knives and believe you simply have to keep and use them because you like them aesthetically, the best way to maintain them is with a cheap ceramic 'V' blade sharpener. But be absolutely certain you wash the knife completely before you use it as it will rip so much of the cheap steel off the blade to center the edge it will leave material all along the blade surface. Best recommendation is to avoid these knives for anything other than decorative purposes whatsoever.
Oh yeah- I've had it for about 2 weeks now and haven't had to use the steel on it. I'll update the review the first time I have to use the steel on it.
**Well, it took 2 months, but I finally had to use a honing steel, just a few swipes and it was nice and sharp once again**
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..!!
EDIT: After using this knife extensively for over two months, I have noticed that the blade has lost its cutting ability. Its not bad by any means, but its definitely noticeable. I am a little disappointed that it only took 2 months of use before the blade went dull but a quick sharpening has fixed the issue. I'll continue to use this knife over the next few months and report what I've found. I did think of lowering the review to 4 stars but the knife is back to its old sharpness with minimal effort- so no love lost!
