Kamikoto knives are designed for chefs and serious home cooks, and I used one when chopping up a large eggplant for my new Cheesy Eggplant Bake recipe. It’s amazing how much more enjoyable cooking is when you have high-quality tools, and this knife from our sponsor was no exception!

About Kamikoto High-End Knives

The Kamikoto 神箏 Kanpeki Knife Set is handcrafted from high-quality steel from Honshu 本州, Japan and rigorously quality tested to ensure that it meets the distinction and caliber of Kamikoto 神箏.

The Kamikoto 神箏 Kanpeki Knife Set that we gave away includes one slicing knife (8.5 inches long), one vegetable knife (7 inches long), and one utility knife (5 inches long) to tackle the smaller, more intricate chores in the kitchen. Each knife is precision balanced and weighted for optimal form and long-lasting performance, and each blade is carefully tapered on one side and hollow ground on the other. Both handle and blade are satin finished, and the entire set is presented in a natural-colored ash wood box for safe storage and keeping.

    Liked on Facebook but wasn’t that hard…these are gorgeous and SO much better than the hand-me-down steak knives I use for all my chopping, slicing, and finger nicking!

  2. You know when you go to cut a tomato and instead of the knife sliding cleanly through it it just mashes the tomatoes until some falls off? That’s my current (very sad) knife situation, and to be able to chop my veggies (including the difficult and large spaghetti squash) more easily would be a dream.

    The first thing I would love to use the Kamikoto knives for is my spaghetti squash primavera. Yummy but knife heavy dish and my old knives make it a bit of a chore

    I would use the knives to chop up all of my homegrown organic foods, so that I can preserve and freeze them to use during the winter months! We need a new knife set, so this would be the PERFECT replacement!

  5. I’d use them for what my husband and I call Fancy Food Fridays. Instead of eating out, we eat in and make something that takes more time than we normally have during the week. These knives look fantastic, my husband would love them!!!

    1. Does the drawing get to comments after 800 I hope?! :) Food prep with garden veggies AND replacing 20 year old knives!

  6. My knives are so terrible that they seem to generally be used to cut my fingers. I would love for them to actually cut vegetables instead… especially butternut squash and potatoes!

  7. My wife and I have been using random knives we’ve acquired over the past 15 years of marriage. We don’t have a complete set, let along a knife that will cut anything!!! My wife is a homemaker and teacher to our 3 homeschooled children and she cooks everything from scratch, so lots of chopping of fruits, veggies, nuts, breads and every once in a while she dices up steak for steak tacos!!! I hope we win!!!

  8. I have never had a good knife set, but it didn’t matter too much because I didn’t cook that much. In he past few months I have set on a new eating habit thanks to reading your book and now cook almost everything from scratch. I have never used my crummy knives as much as I do now. I’ve heard you can cut down prep time by having good knives but how do I know what makes a good set of knives. There are so many to choose from and the prices are so high. I would LOVE to win this set to have my first really good set of knives in my entire married life (18 years). With 5 in my family, any time savings and money would be welcome!

    My current knives are 20 years old! I am looking to replace them. I use my knives every day. Having a good set of knives makes preparing meals easier. I love making meals for my family. These Kamikoto knives would be a wonderful replacement for my current ones.

    I know that using a top of the line set of knives can take your cooking to the next level! I’d love the chance to do that! This set has the knives I’ve always wanted! Thank you!

    I want to make whole food recipes for my family. My 16 year son was diagnosed with MS last fall and we are trying to manage his disease with nutrition as his medication has not been successful at eliminsting flare ups. I am not a great cook but am learning quickly… and vegetables can be very stubborn to cut.

  12. I would happily slice all the things (that wouldn’t harm the knife). I don’t love cooking yet, but I want to!

  13. I’d love to use these knives to help make dishes for my family. It would speed things along, as I’m known for being a tad bit slow in the kitchen! :P

  14. Eating real food means a lot of chopping, dicing, cutting, slicing! I have gone through many knifes in an attempt to feed my family real food. Could definitely use a good set of them.

    I would use the knives so that my children can use the current set and help me prep our picnic snacks, dinner, and all the other summer finger foods. Thank you. Facebook.

    Man, I’d really use a great set of knives like that for everything and anything in the kitchen!!


  17. We get a CSA box every week & would LOVE this set to be able to prep all of those veggies! Wow! What a beautiful set!!

    All good things come in 3’s:-)

    I cook for my family of 3 every night and would enjoy using the Kamikoto knives to chop veggies from my organic garden, fruit for snacks, slicing chicken for our favorite “Lisa recipe”; Buttery Roasted Chicken with Breadcrumbs and Herbs recipe, and slicing cheese for turkey burgers.

  19. Having a knife set that would work and making chopping and food prep more efficient would greatly be appreciated! Facebook :)
    Thank you!

  20. I’d use them for all of our food prep! We currently have one cheap knife we bought on clearance from walmart ($1) and it’s horrible. Makes food prep so hard.

    A set of sharp, high quality knives would make food prep so much faster and easier allowing me more time with my 5 kiddos and hubby!

    My husband would love these as a gift and I would enjoy using them to make meals for our family as well.
