I have info to add about these knives. I'm not a cook, but somebody working in the IT field. I was just asked by this company (or their marketing agency) to wash all links containing bad reviews off Google. Kamikoto, or their marketing agency are employing low cost workers to "click farm" The Amazon page with fake reviews to drop cheftalk.com's reviews to the bottom. Basically the task to these low cost workers was this. Google "Kamikoto knives" and "Kamikoto knives review". Click the link of the google results only if the website is either Amazon, or the Kamikoto official website.
