Large Knife Sets are a Scam

You already know having a good knife will make your life easier in the kitchen and make cooking more fun.

The trouble is that when you start shopping for good knives you quickly find large sets that contain 10, 15, even 20 knives.

99% of us will never use more than a few knives, so we asked why these big sets exist?

The answer - to get you to spend more money, for inferior knives. You get more knives, but the reality is, you don't need more.

You need better.

We started Misen because we believe everyone should have access to premium kitchen tools for honest and affordable prices.

Our essential knife set is a reflection of that belief. Only the knives you need, for a fraction of the cost.

The Three Knives Every Chef Uses

The Three Knives Every Chef Uses

If you ask any professional chef what knives are the most important they'd all the say the same thing.

That's because they know that with only three essential knives, you can literally cook any meal in the kitchen.

Misen's Essential Knives

What Makes the Misen Knives Great?

What Makes the Misen Knives Great?

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 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.

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 for This Set, But We’d Prefer Not To.

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

We could easily charge $300 for this knife set. But $130 is fair and honest. 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.

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

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

Some are, but not Misen's. Our hybrid design and premium AUS-8 Japanese steel is known for its durability and ability to hold a sharp edge. That means less maintenance for you.
