"It rivaled my favorite Global in terms of performance, cutting through tomatoes like a hot knife through butter"
"Excellence they've got in spades: That knife boasts three layers of Japanese steel, which they source directly from Japan"
"Comfortable to hold, well-made, and impossibly sharp"

The perfect balance

Top-heavy knives cause hand-cramping. Our blade is a full tang: it extends into the handle, so weight is better distributed, and won’t break under pressure.

A knife is only as good as the precision of its cut. In pursuit of enduring sharpness, we were inspired by narrow-tipped Japanese knives and tested numerous angles before landing on a 13° edge.

At finishing, each knife is hand-polished, then heat-treated at 300°F before being cryogenically tempered at a well-beyond freezing -250°. This process alters the structure of the steel on a molecular level, making it harder, sharper, and more durable.

We integrated the classic oval shape of Japanese handles into our design, but used an innovative, stain-resistant composite material in a matte finish to make ours firm and slightly grippy, for safe and confident chopping.

The result? Just the right weight, just the right balance, and that perfect feels-just-right-in-your-hand sensation.

Evokes a Primal Fear with its Sharpness

Awesome Knife.

Perfect Size and Weight - Creates a Good Balance.

Sharp enough to cut thin transparent slices of Tomatoes.

Bit expensive, to treat it as a beater Knife.

A premade sheath for storage would have been awesome to have.
