4 Things You Didn’t Know About the Misen Chef’s Knife

SHARPER = SAFER

15º Blade Edges Give You Better Control

The sharper your knife, the more control you have. A sharp knife glides through food without much pressure, while a dull one needs extra force to make a cut. The more force you use, the less control you have over your blade.

That’s why we chose 15º edge angles for our Chef’s Knife instead of the traditional 22º — they give you a noticeably sharper and more controlled cut.

MORE CARBON = LASTING SHARPNESS

You Don’t Need to Sharpen It All the Time

Carbon makes steel harder, and therefore harder to wear down. This is how hard steels with higher carbon content can hold a sharp edge for longer than softer steels.

That’s why we use AICHI AUS-10 in the Misen Chef’s Knife. The high carbon content holds a sharp edge for longer, helping you spend more time cooking and less time keeping your knife sharp.

PERFECT “PINCH”

Misen’s Bolster Helps You Get the Best Grip

A knife should feel good in your hand. Most of that comes down to having a comfortable, easily controlled grip.

We designed the bolster of our Chef’s Knife — where the blade meets the handle — with a sloped shape. This makes the Misen Chef’s Knife most comfortable for the highly controlled “pinch” grip used by most professionals.

EXPENSIVE DOESN’T MEAN BETTER

Misen has the Best Price for Value

With retail markups, quality chef’s knives can easily cost upwards of $150. For everyday kitchen tools, we don’t think that’s fair.

At Misen, we partner closely with our factories and sell directly to you online, so we’re able to offer an incredible knife at a fair price — just $65.

The Misen Chef’s Knife

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.
