Katto Knives: A Review

Recently, I was invited to try a Katto Knife. Katto knives are handmade, high quality, professional standard knives made using sustainable materials. I love cooking, so couldn't wait to start preparing some food using my new knife.  

I opted to try the Santoku knife which is a perfect all-rounder. It's a light and agile knife, which is ideal for me as I'm a vegetarian so I mainly prepare veg. The Santoku knife, originally from Japan, was designed for mincing, dicing and slicing. In Japanese, santoku means “three virtues” or “three uses.” 

The knife arrived beautifully packaged in a sleek and stylish box. Inside the box was a really useful knife care information sheet, a card mounted penny along with a card to explain it's reason, a tote bag and of course the knife itself. The attention to detail in the packing was really wonderful and you could tell that the company really values its customers and cares about the products it is selling.

I was so pleased with the knife. Firstly, it looks great. I chose the Henry handle which was made from black walnut, but the other options were a beech or rosewood handle. The dark wood against the dark and lighter grey shades of the blade looks really sophisticated. The blade itself has a dappled design around the spine which is in keeping with its Japanese roots. It's a sturdy and decent size and the handle fits comfortably in your hand.

The knife was really effective at precision cutting. Usually when cutting tomatoes, I manage to squash all the insides out in the process but this didn't happen with my Katto knife which demonstrates how sharp and versatile it is. I was able to chop any fruit and vegetables really finely as opposed to the usual hacking I do with my current (perhaps quite blunt!) knives!

I was really impressed with my Katto knife and it is now my go to knife for preparing food every day. The company offer free shipping, free returns and free sharpening too, what brilliant customer service!

  1. I don't think I have ever thought of a knife as beautiful before but this really is. It sounds like it's really good at cutting too. x
