My Pink Kitchen Knife

Updated on January 16, 2016

Do you like bright colored kitchen utensils?

I fell in love at first sight with the bright colors of the Pure Komachi 2 knives. If you want a more lady like knife set, check out this pretty pink chef's knife. I was sick of re-purchasing knives after my cheap sets would dull or rust. I've never had a professional knife set and I was down to my last knife in the kitchen that wasn't ruined. I've been in a cooking frenzy and tend to chop a lot of vegetables, which can be a challenge without the proper kitchen tools. I went on a search for a new type of knife that I could try and wanted something a bit higher end.

Although, this one knife only cost about $9 on Amazon, that's still more then I have ever spent on a single knife before. I was not only intrigued by the color of the knives, which I have to admit is my favorite part, but I liked that most of the knife is coated with a non-stick silicon, making only the very metal edge exposed and open to rusting. Because rust is my main issue with kitchen knives, I thought this might be the perfect solution.

The Kai Pure Komachi 2 knives are made from High Carbon Stainless Steel as is printed right on the knife itself (the photo above is printed on the blade). The Kai corporation is the maker of the knife and is located in Japan.

Hand washing is recommended for most knives, and these are no exception. The color coating can actually be scratched by abrasive cleaning tools, so just wash it with a clean cloth after use. Most food particles with wipe right off the non-stick coati

My Ratings of the Knife

Design – 5 Stars – I really like the color and look of the knives, they are pretty and modern and I like that the blades are coated in a non-stick color.

Sharpness -3 Stars – The knife cuts well, but overall I was not blown away by how sharp it was. I’d say it has the same amount of sharpness of any brand new knife. I’ve been using it now for about a month and it’s still working well, but I will update this review after I’ve had the knife longer.

Rust-Resistance – 5 Stars – While this may not be a feature everyone cares about, it was very important to me that I didn’t buy another knife set that was going to become rusty before it became dull. The coating on the blades helps to protect it from rusting since only a very small metal portion of the knife is visible.

Weight – 4 Stars – I was surprised at how light the knife is. I like the weight, but I could see that some people might think the knife feels a little “cheap” or too light compared to some more expensive knives that I have held or used. The handle is also made of plastic, so if your hands are wet, it’s possible the knife could slip if you are not being careful.

      isn't that a plastic knife? I had seen those but how do you sharpen it when it is blunt?

      It is plastic, I would just toss it when dull, it's not expensive enough to go through the ear disturbing torture of sharpening.
