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.

beautiful knife

This is my new go-to knife. As advertised it is well balanced and the grip feels very comfortable in your hand. It arrives very sharp and is a pleasure to use.

Impressive!

Initially it was larger thank I expected, but it is an amazing knife with it's sharpness and balance. It's definitely a "grown up " knife.
