"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.

Beautiful Knife

I bought it as a gift for a family member. Was impressed with everything about the knife from the packaging to the appearance of the knife. It is truly beautiful and appears to be extremely sharp. Dealing with the Material Company has been a pleasure.
