I lived in a beautiful village called Nishiyama in Niigata prefecture in Japan for two years. Niigata is well-known for having the best rice and sake in Japan but it's also known for having one of the best knife makers in Japan, Kamikoto knives.
Kamikoto is a maker of Japanese-style knives – crafted from high-quality steel sourced from different parts of Japan. According to Kamikoto their knives are made for a lifetime, the perfect balance of strength and aesthetic beauty. Kamikoto stays true to Honshu’s century-old legacy of steel-making excellence, to create knives of exceptional quality and beauty.
I was delighted to receive these knives as a gift from Kamikoto and I look forward to using them in my kitchen here in Ireland!
