The first knife was made in Takefu, Japan, 700 years ago and the same technique is still used to make knives today. The tradition of the local knife makers was continued in 1792 by Isuke Kato, who also started making traditional Japanese knives under the Kiya brand. Their perfect blades are made using the same techniques as hundreds of years ago. As a result, Kiya knives offer the perfection and precision of Japanese tradition.

The term Santoku can be translated as the three virtues. It is the name that points to the knife's versatility, with a blade composed of 11 layers of 170 millimetres of Damascus steel, which is decorated with a beautiful Suminagashi marbling. The blade's form suggests that this is not a traditional chef's knife, but combines the advantages of a chef's knife and a Nakiri knife, which is used for chopping vegetables into fine pieces and slices.

The Santoku will become the jewel of your kitchen, a ceremonial weapon used in the ritual of food preparation. The shape of the blade ensures minimal leakage of liquids, so that the sliced meat, vegetables and fruits will be full of juices and vitamins. The sandalwood handle guarantees perfect ergonomics, making the knife an extension of its owner's hand, whose initials can be engraved into the blade.

Possibility of engraving name or initials on the blade. The knife comes in its original Japanese box in traditional newsprint as authentically sold in Japan.

If you will not be using the knife for a long time, treat it with oil and wrap the blade in cloth or paper.

Types of Kampot pepper

Černý pepř

BLACK PEPPER

This is harvested, unripe, at the beginning of the year when the grains are green. Black colouring occurs as the corns dry in the sun.

Show use

Grill it, fry it, stew it! What? Meat! Black pepper is perfect for steaks, red meat, sauces, soups and also for all types of pasta and Italian cuisine in general.

Bílý pepř

WHITE PEPPER

This is a champagne among peppers which has nothing to do with the white pepper you know. The white pepper you buy in shops here is just peeled unripe black pepper which tend to get musty and thus nobody likes it. The genuine white pepper is peeled from ripe red one (it is its seed) and so it gets its specific qualities for which it´s sought by top chefs all over the world – the white pepper opens up taste buds and multiplies the taste of each ingredient.

Show use

Perfect for grilling dark meat, grinding on cheese and pairing with wine and tapas. Also good for savoring vegetable soups, gnocchi, pesto, potato dishes, pasta, homemade baking, Asian cuisine and spreads.

Červený pepř

RED PEPPER

Genuine red Kampot pepper is unique in the world. It is extremely rare and grows only in a few places in the world. It is harvested fully ripe at the peak of the pepper season and thanks to its long ripening it is full of fructose, which gives it a unique sweet-fruity taste. The so-called “red pepper" (which is actually pink) we can find in the Czech Republic is not pepper at all and is so incorrectly labeled. It is a Brazilian peppercorn that grows in a tree and is popular for its colour.

Show use

Don´t use it for meat – it is a great friend with fish or seafood. On the other hand, you will love it in cold kitchen for vegetarian dishes, salads, vegetable, eggs, vegetable soups, risotto, sweet deserts, cocktails or Christmas sweets.

Lyofilizovaný pepř

LYOPHILIZED PEPPER

Fresh green Kampot pepper freeze-dried in the Czech Republic! A special process of lyophilization for keeping the maximal quality, freshness and taste accents of genuine fresh Kampot pepper from Cambodia right to your plate. 100% organic fair-trade product collected with love. When mixed with oil or another liquid, the peppercorn absorbs the liquid and then tastes like fresh. Do not put it in grinder, use it whole or crushed in mortar.

Show use

It is perfect for steaks, sauces, pasta, meat or crushed for grilling.

Certificates of authenticity of Kampot pepper

Authentic Kampot Pepper must always be accompanied by four compulsory certificates that determine its quality, uniqueness, and origin. In addition, a ‘Lot Number’ must always be stated on the packaging. This number allows the pepper to be tracked right back to the specific farmer that produced it.

Trademark

Proves the origin and quality of Kampot pepper. There are many cheap copies all over the world, named for example pepper from Kampot, pepper Kampot or pepper from Cambodia, which, however, have nothing to do with the real Kampot pepper. So, if your pepper doesn't have all four certificates and a lot number, it's not the genuine Kampot pepper.

"Extremely unique product with a great drive behind them. Awesome product and customer service. Perfect for a gift to impress your in-laws, boss or clients."

"First time I tasted Kampot pepper on our vacation in Cambodia, it was phenomenal! I am ordering the Kampot pepper from Amazon ever since. Now when I have an option to order from the smallest farmers, I can have great feeling whenever I open the pack as a bonus to the best taste."

Tim Anderson

"Got the pepper, it is very unique. I found it had more flavor and the aroma was wonderful. The pepper came in a small well sealed package. The ground pepper was a little spicier than regular black pepper, but not too spicy. I think it was most likely just fresher and delivered in better condition."
