"...perfectly balanced...premium materials...beautifully designed"
It's the best knife I've ever used—and it's affordable
An incredible knife at an honest price
The Misen chef’s knife raised more than $1 million on Kickstarter and has won over cooks of all stripes, from kitchen professionals to passionate home cooks.
Why? We combine innovative design, premium materials and honest, direct-to-consumer pricing in one ultra-sharp package. If you only buy one great knife in your lifetime, this should be it.
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.
Our knives incorporate 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.
