The work is one still in progress I guess as there are still several bad reviews of the knives on the first page of a google. They have buried the cheftalk posts though.
I have a friend who unfortunately did the same thing. If it hasn't shipped yet you can cancel the order and be fully refundedI appreciate the comments on these. I ordered them for the "discounted" price of $279. I have not received them yet, but will be returning them unopened as soon as I do. I got suckered into the huge discount, as I have been wanting some good knives for a while now. Saw the good reviews without realizing the company pays people to do them. This kind of behavior is unacceptable from a company and I hope this thread comes up in more google searches.
This is the first review that popped up on Amazon so easy to find. Seems legit:It's clear (I hope) that Kamikoto is a scam. But what we lack thus far is a hands-on review from someone who knows something serious about knives. We get remarks on out-of-the-box, their selling methods, their business practices. But we don't really have hard data with which to fight Facebook and Amazon shilling and the like.
