Better Tools for Better Cooking

Thoughtful Design. Quality Materials. Honest Price.


A Little Bit About Us

Our name comes from ‘mise en place’ — a culinary term that means “to put in place.” Chefs use the term to describe the process of setting up their stations before service. Misen is an ode to mise en place; better cooking through proper preparation with quality tools.



Our Product Ethos

Most chef’s knives are either cheap and flimsy, or come burdened with bloated price tags and unexplained features. That didn’t seem right to us, so we took a simpler approach:


Quality Materials
Quality Materials

We spent months choosing a premium Japanese steel for our knife, offering a great balance of sharp edge retention and durability.

Thoughtful Design

The millimeters matter. From our sloped bolster to a unique hybrid blade shape, the Misen Chef’s Knife is as functional as it is beautiful.

Honest Price

While some ‘premium’ knives cost upwards of $145+, we ‘cut’ out the middlemen to deliver an incredible knife straight to you at an honest price.


Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy


We founded Misen to help people cook better, and before a single sketch was made, measurement taken or material considered, we bonded over the idea of what great cooking means to us. While we tip our hat to the dedicated molecular gastronomist, to us, great cooking boils down to something much less complicated: delicious, fresh ingredients, prepared with a few simple techniques using quality tools.

“Ingredients, equipment, and techniques - these are the fundamentals of cooking”
Mark Bittman

Our mission is to inspire and enable great cooking, and to us well-made tools are absolutely essential to that. From perfect golden sears with a quality pan, to beautifully sliced vegetables with a sharp knife, we believe that better tools make for better cooking, and better meals. So whether you’re cooking a dinner party for 12, or a quiet meal at home alone, we hope Misen can help you make your cooking better, starting with an amazing knife at an honest price.
