Misen vs. "Premium" Knives

A $65 knife that cuts like it cost $150

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 50,000 households already switched to Misen? See for yourself.

"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 groups: 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 high-quality AUS-8 carbon stainless 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 Prefer Not To

We Could Charge a Lot, But We Prefer Not To

Knives made from the same materials as Misen cost $150.  Mostly because of retail markups and companies thinking you should pay more to own something with their logo on it.

We'd prefer to keep our prices low which is why we sell directly to you and can keep our prices 60% lower than those other knives without middlemen.

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.
