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 the Shape - This little beauty is a small, uniquely shaped vegetable knife. It has a flat edge like a Nakiri. Making it perfect for chopping herbs or slicing small vegetables like shallots or garlic. Its compact size makes it great for line cooks. The extended blade height is awesome for people who have bigger hands and have a tough time keeping their knuckles off the cutting board. Originally designed to cut rubber soles for shoemaking, the Kamagata compliments any knife collection.
About Masakage Koishi - These knives 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.
