You don't need to watch Kill Bill-Volume 2, be a great chef or a master swordsman to know the best blades in the world are Japanese. Their reputation for blades dates back to the 13th century.

All these Japanese traditions seem to have gone into the hands of the Kamikoto master knife crafters and their way of making knives nowadays. And their dedication, appear to have paid off, as the brand show a double digit growth last year and an increasing recognition amongst a growing audience in the West.

The master craftsmen use only the best selected steel from the steel mills on Niigata, from Honshu island, in Japan – a steel with high carbon content and rich in iron which makes it corrosion resistant and very durable.

At the forge, the steel is heated up to 1050ºC for two hours and then annealed at 200ºC for another two hours. This strengthens the steel and diminishes the flexibility of the blade, ensuring the knife keeps its edge for longer and the blade stays firm when held against a whetstone.

The Kamikoto knives are hand tested one by one before they are released for sale, to assure that only the best quality product goes into the market. They are carefully balanced and meticulously polished.

When purchasing a Kamikoto knife, you will also get a wooden block to display it on. The manufacturer claims it's one of a kind knife and, therefore, should not be hidden away. Also, they come with certificates of authenticity and a Limited Warranty for the lifetime of the original owner.

Kamikoto guarantees the knives against manufacturing defects in material and construction. The Warranty is not transferable and does not extend to normal signs of improper maintenance (rust or breakage, for instance) neither to product modifications, accidents, loss or theft.

If the manufacturer determines a knife to be defective, it will be replaced with no charge. What is quite excellent news, if you consider some Kamikoto knives cost over 600USD.
