  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

Best selection, quick arrival, trustworthy seller.

I came across this website when a YouTuber Chef I follow did a kitchen equipment video 4 years ago. I bought my first knife off of this website; super straightforward checkout, quick shipping (considering all), no hassle and no problems whatsoever. The selection and care for the knives Koki chooses to provide on this website is unquestionable. I became a line cook and went to a local, quality kitchen equipment store and (without any knife knowledge) bought a knife from a mainstream commercialized Japanese knife brand. I quickly realized it was a big mistake when I realized the small petty knife I purchased from Koki on this website was staying sharper and in better condition than what I had found in person. I came back to this website after 2 years and bought myself a Misono Santoku and a Gyuto. Same straightforward checkout, same quick shipping, and same no hassle experience. Great knives. I’ve recommended this website to multiple coworkers of mine who were just as satisfied with what Koki is curating here. Lisa Pham Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Misono Santoku

Great knife. Had it for about 2 weeks and haven’t sharpened it but workable sharp out of the box. It’s a bit cheaper on Amazon if you have prime but great knife. Good quality. Timely delivery and exactly as expected.
