After teasing a custom-fabricated kitchen knife — resembling a Zaku‘s Heat Hawk blade from the Gundam series anime — last year, Amenoma has now released the batch of colorful kitchen blades.

Made from forged steel in Miki City, located in Japan’s Hyogo Prefecture, the blades boasts superior durability and can double as an outdoor tool. There are three versions including the standard model in green, down to the premium version which sees a special 8-layer laminated steel blade that has been dyed black on a crimson body. While this is not an officially licensed product, it would make for the perfect gift for the chef who’s also a Gundam fanatic.

The Amenoma GUSTAV KG-06 series of kitchen knives are priced between ¥39,000 JPY and ¥48,000 JPY (approximately $360 USD and $445 USD) and can be found over at miki-japan.com.
