A Knife Company That Started with a Pan

Misen founder, Omar Rada, was working at Fresh Direct and found it hard not to get caught up in the culture that loved cooking and food. As a new chef, he quickly realized that good, quality cookware truly made a difference in his food.

“My previous cookware had been pretty mediocre, so a quality pan was a revelation. It cooked food more evenly, allowed me to be more versatile and creative in the kitchen, and was so much fun to use.”

The idea for Misen started out of frustration when he let a friend borrow a $300 All-Clad 12-inch skillet that had been a gift. His friend lost the pan (who loses a pan?!), and the sticker shock nearly killed him when he tried to replace it. Good quality cookware, shouldn't be something only a few can afford.

So Misen was born. With a mission and passion to create premium cooking essentials for an honest and affordable price.

The Single Most Important Tool in Your Kitchen

The Single Most Important Tool in Your Kitchen

We started with a knife because as any chef will tell you, a good knife is like a best friend in the kitchen. From mincing garlic to breaking down meats, it’s the workhorse you'll use every day. There’s an almost indescribable joy to effortlessly slicing through foods with a razor-sharp, professional blade.

It used to be that you had two options: poorly constructed, low-quality knives that are hard to use but affordable or highly-quality, beautiful knives that cost $200. That sucks. So we did something about.

An Investment Worth Making

A great knife is the one-tool worth buying now. You'll have it for the rest of your life.

What Makes a Great Knife?

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 (Wusthof/Henckles), known for its toughness and durability and Japanese steel (Global/Shun), known for its razor-sharp edge. Rather than pick a side, we opted to cherry pick the best 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 to find the perfect hardness. With 60% higher carbon content than our competitors, we’re able to build a knife that offers a great balance. It’s a unique sweet spot that’ll keep your knife sharp and strong.

Features

PREMIUM JAPANESE STEEL

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.

SLOPED BOLSTER

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

15° BLADE ANGLES

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

Smarter Design, Better Knives

Smarter Design, Better Knives

We spent two 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. We hope you love it as much as we do.

We Could Charge A Lot, But We’d Prefer Not To.

We Could Charge A Lot, But We’d Prefer Not To.

We could easily charge $200 for this knife. But $65 felt right.

Most “premium” knives jack up the price simply because they can. We hate that.

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.
