"Incredible quality and design, high end materials, perfect balance, and a razor sharp edge."

"...perfectly balanced...premium materials...beautifully designed."

"It's the best knife I've ever used - and it's affordable."

Over $1 Million raised on Kickstarter (Thank you Backers!)

The Only Knives You’ll Ever Need.

You don’t need a bulky 15-piece set. With just a few high-quality knives, you can tackle almost any cooking task your heart desires.

Our sets come in three or five pieces. Each knife is made from premium high-carbon stainless steel, and is thoughtfully designed to feel good in your hand and last a lifetime.

It’s not just our knives that are thoughtfully designed — we carefully curate our knife sets to ensure that you have every knife you need, and nothing you don’t.

Features

Premium Japanese Steel

Misen knives are made with AICHI steel, which offers an excellent balance of sharp edge retention and durability and has significantly more carbon content than other “premium” knives.

Unique Sloped Bolster

Our unique sloped bolster pulls double duty: the sloped shape encourages a proper “pinch grip” for comfort and control, while the bolster’s placement creates better access to the full length of the blade.

15º Blade Angle

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

Great set covering most needs

What can I say... You will not be disappointed!

The set of five covers most needs.

Nice fit and finish. Couple burrs that rubbed the hand wrong. Easily taken care of with a stone. VERY SHARP! Seem to hold the edge well.

Highly recommend!

Worth the investment

These knives are so great! Not only are they insanely sharp, they also have a good weight to them. Definitely good investment pieces for the kitchen.

The knives I have been looking for my whole life

Great weight; the balance is spot on. Very comfortable to hold. Solid but not too heavy. Blade is sharp and true.
