    About 5-inch Utility Knife®

    Over a thousand years of craftsmanship have inspired the final form of Kamikoto 神箏 knives. Meticulously handcrafted and rigorously quality tested, each blade features high-quality steel from Honshu 本州, Japan – a steel with high corrosion resistance and durability.

    A workhorse with a shorter blade, the Kamikoto 5-inch Utility Knife ultimately lends itself to slicing, peeling, shucking and pitting when you need the extra maneuverability.  Well-balanced with some heft, swap to this blade for separating meat from bone when butchering or when gutting fish and other seafood for the barbecue.

    Finished and sharpened by hand, the Kamikoto 8.5-inch Slicing Knife is presented in a natural-colored ash wood box for safe storage and keeping.

    These knives are beautiful. I was a bit skeptical trying them as I love my knife set and research extensively before I add to my collection. As soon as I picked up the nakiri, the weight and balance told me I was going to love it. Anything I cut with the nakiri feels like slicing through soft butter with that wonderful blade.

    We are so impressed with the Kamikoto knives. They are of both extremely high quality whilst being functional and appropriate for everyday kitchen use. We would highly recommend them for professional and home use.

    You can feel the precision and old tradition of knife making simply by holding these knives in your hand. The weight and balance of these knives are perfectly designed as they truly feel like an extension of your hand with each razor sharp cut.

    Customer Queries

    What is the shipping time?
    We allow 24 hours after a client places an order before the order is processed and shipped. Clients have 24 hours to notify our team regarding any changes they wish to make to their order.

    We would ask that our clients allow 5 business days for the item to arrive to their home from the time that they receive the shipping confirmation email.
    Do the lengths stated in the description refer to the full knife or just the blade?
    The dimensions on the product page refer to the length of the blade only.
    How do you sharpen the knives?
    We recommend that customers invest in Kamikoto’s Toishi Sharpening Whetstone to keep handcrafted knives sharp and ready to cut. The Toishi Sharpening Whetstone sits on a beautiful wooden bamboo stand and features two sides – one with a coarse grit to grind away any roughness, and the other with a fine grit that sharpens and polishes the edge. The finer the grit, the finer the edge on your knife. The sturdy wooden stand holds the whetstone safely in place so you can concentrate on gaining the sharpest edge possible.

    Click here to see full set of instructions.
    Do you have knives made for left-handed users?
    At the moment we only offer knives for right-handed users. However, we are looking into an option for our left-handed clients.
    Are the knives dishwasher safe?
    Do not place handcrafted knives in the dishwasher. This is because knives and cutlery rub against each other or against other objects during the wash cycle – this can leave scratches, damage the blade or damage the plastic finish on the cutlery basket.
