About the Shape -Shallots, garlic, herbs, itty bitty diced onion and tomato, beef tartare… none can stand up to the small but mighty Kamagata. The flatness along the edge and its height makes it ideal for chopping, and its flat-out adorable size makes it easy to wield for cooks of all sizes.
About Masakage Koishi -These knives, which are hand forged by Yoshimi Kato have been named Koishi (pebbles) for the tsuchime (hammered) and kurouchi (black) finish that give the impression of river pebbles. With the octagonal cherry wood and black pakka handle, the overall balance and feel is what chefs desire and makes it a Culinary Badass. Think Chuck Norris, but if he was a kitchen knife
Aogami Super is the king of knife steel - super easy to sharpen, gets a laser beam edge, cuts like silk and is very rugged for its hardness. It’s called SUPER for a reason. The outer layer is stainless steel, making this knife very easy to maintain.
