Why You Need a High-Quality Knife

A high-quality Chef’s Knife will make your cooking experience quicker, easier, and more fun.

You use your kitchen knives to cook every single day. Sometimes more.

That daily use will show a clear difference between cheap, low-quality kitchen knives and higher-quality ones.

Both will technically cut your food, but making dinner with a dull knife takes much more time and effort. Spending that extra time and energy doesn’t help you enjoy cooking, especially after a long day.

Think of it this way — if you cut down trees every day, what would you use to do it: a dull axe or a chainsaw? Both will get the job done...but one makes the experience much faster and easier.

How a Quality Knife Makes Cooking Enjoyable

It stays sharp for longer.
Every knife is going to be sharp out of the box. But only good ones will still feel sharp after a few weeks. Because most quality knives have more carbon in their blade steel, their edges can stay sharper for longer.

It’s more comfortable to hold.
Good knives are designed with comfort in mind. A comfortable grip is crucial to keeping control of your knife and fully enjoying your time cooking.

The Importance of a Great Knife

See for yourself why Misen is first in its class.

What Makes a Great Knife?

A great knife should feel good in your hand, stay sharp, and hold up over time to the rigors of your kitchen. Simple, right? But behind these deceptively simple concepts are centuries of tradition, technology, design, and craft.

The knife world is split into two major players: German steel, known for its toughness and durability; and Japanese steel, known for its razor-sharp edge. Rather than pick a side, we opted to cherry pick the best qualities from each to create the ultimate hybrid.

The end result? A knife that stays incredibly sharp, but will also remain durable over the long haul.

The Perfect Balance

Choosing the right steel is a delicate balancing act: too much hardness creates a brittle knife, while too little means a blade will dull fast.

With 2x the carbon content of steel used by some competitors, the AUS-10 steel in our Chef’s Knife is the perfect sweet spot that’ll keep your knife strong and sharp over time.

The Chef’s Knife is made with AICHI AUS-10 steel, which offers an even better balance between lasting sharpness and durability and 2x the carbon content of other “premium” knives.

Our unique sloped bolster pulls double duty: the sloped shape encourages a proper “pinch grip” for comfort and control, while the bolster’s placement creates better access to the full length of the blade.

While most Western-style knives have edge angles of 25 degrees, we use more acute 15 degree angles for a noticeably sharper cutting face.

Misen knives are made with AICHI steel, offering a great balance of sharp edge retention and durability, with 60% more carbon content than other “premium” knives.

Our knives incorporates a sloped bolster that travels gradually onto the blade face and encourages a proper "pinch grip" for better comfort and control.

While most Western-style knives have edge angles of 25 degrees, we use more acute 15 degree angles for a noticeably sharper cutting face.

Handcrafted Down to the Smallest Detail

We spent four years developing this knife because every little detail matters. And partly because we’re a bit insane.

At every step along the way, our knife was hand-tested and refined by professional chefs, avid home cooks, product designers, and people who’ve never even held a knife before. We painstakingly went through 37 different prototypes until we knew we had the perfect knife.

The final result? A knife that’s a pleasure to hold, easy to maneuver, sharp enough to plow through even the toughest foods, and a blade that stays sharper longer.

Aren't high-end knives hard to care for?

Some are, but not Misen’s. Our hybrid design and premium AUS-10 Japanese steel is known for its durability and ability to hold a sharp edge. That means less maintenance for you.
