Misen vs. "Premium" Knives

Our $65 knife can go head-to-head with any knife without breaking a sweat.

Before Misen, you had two options when purchasing kitchen knives: premium knives that are dramatically overpriced, and disposable,budget-blades made with cheap materials that won't work after a week.

Neither of these choices — pay too much for a fancy knife or buy a cheap one  — seemed right, so we so we did something about it.

Why have over 20,000 households already switched to Misen? See for yourself.

Serious Eats Calls Misen
"The Holy Grail of Knives"

A Unique Hybrid Design

A Unique Hybrid Design

Great knives should feel good in your hand, be durable, and stay razor sharp. Simple, right? But behind these deceptively simple concepts are centuries of tradition, technology, design, and craft.

Premium knives are 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 cherrypick the best design elements from each. The end result? A knife that's incredibly sharp AND durable.

Sharper, Harder, More Durable

Sharper, Harder, More Durable

How did we perfect the knife? It starts with our premium AUS-8 steel, which is the Goldilocks of steel. Known for both its durability and ability to stay sharp.

Unlike other knives, the Misen knife requires less maintenance to keep sharp and will remain durable for the long haul.

The Perfect Balance

Misen knives are made with 60% more carbon than other "premium" knives. And with a unique Rockwell Hardness of 58-59, we found the sweet spot that produces a strong, durable, and razor-sharp blade.

We Could Charge a Lot, But We Don't

We Could Charge a Lot, But We Don't

Comparable knives start at $150.  That's insane. They are jacking up the price because they can. We'd prefer to keep our prices low.

Here's How it Works

By partnering closely with our factories and selling directly to you online, we’re able to offer an incredible knife at wholesale pricing. Better materials, lower price. It’s a simple maxim that we take seriously at Misen.
