Katto Japanese knife company
Katto was born at of time when Josh was at a low point in life and looked into cooking to help with his mental health. Reaching out to his friend Thomas, together they created a range of Japanese knives in 2018.
The knives are crafted by hand, using Japanese steel and sustainable wood. This means no two knives are the same.
What’s on sale?
Currently, Katto has four different knives on sale on its website. Chefs, Santoku, utility, and the bread knife. A PR company reached and asked if I would like to try a knife out to review. Torn between the chef’s and Santoku one as I own a Global chef’s knife at home. I thought the chef’s knife was more versatile and a staple to have in the kitchen.
If you’re ordering from the website you can pick, the wood colour finishings, cardboard or leather scabbard, and personalised monogram for extra money.
What’s in the box from Katto?
The unboxing experience felt personal, you can see the loving care it takes. Unwrapping the brown parcel paper, revealing a branded box with the care info/thank you note is the first thing you’ll see.
What’s with the coin?
The penny in the envelope may seem random but according to an old superstition, gifting a knife means cutting the relationship between you and the receiver.
Katto Chef’s knife
My new sturdy chef’s knife came in the Henry style, with my name engraved on it. Taking it out of the scabbard, the stainless-steel blade comes with a two-toned pattern. It is priced at £125 at the time of review.
From the video online a bonus gift you receive is either a tote or tea towel.
Katto knife Performance
If there’s one knife you purchase in your life let it be a chef’s knife. It is the most versatile all-rounder that does everything you’ll need. It is capable of doing everything from chopping vegetables to carving meat, and light butchery.
On the hand, the Katto chef’s knife feels well balanced, the wooden handle doesn’t weigh down the blade for great control. No hand fatigue for me.
Although not advertised, I found it slices bread perfectly. My old bread knife struggles to cut in a straight line whilst the Katto gives me the precisely controlled cut.
Slicing vegetables such as onions, and limes uniformly. It cuts through meat in smooth motions.
The knife is easy to clean, using dishwashing soap and a soft cloth. Wherever you’re an advanced cook or a complete novice the high-quality Katto Chef’s knife is a great addition to the kitchen.
