About this project

This knife is...

1) Sharper Than Any Other Knife You've Seen

The Japanese style edge combined with our premium German forged "X50CrMo14" steel makes this knife a razor sharp cutting tool that will outperform any other knife in your kitchen. Each blade is individually sharpened and then polished to create a perfectly honed blade that’s incredibly sharp right out of the box. Trust us, it does not get sharper than this:

2) It's Longer-Lasting & It Has Much Better Edge Retention

Most knives sacrifice sharpness for durability or vice versa. That wasn’t a compromise we were willing to make. We used the highest quality German forged steel to design the ideal blade with the perfect cutting properties.

3) The Ideal Length, Cutting Sweet Spot & Comfort

We tested design after design until we found properties that are just right – the perfect length and balance without being too heavy or unwieldy. We even have unique aspects such as a rounded spine, making the knife more comfortable to use for both professional and home cooks.

4) It's Super Versatile & Cuts Through Any Ingredient

We designed this knife to achieve any cutting task in your kitchen. It’s a versatile tool that can replace a whole set of other kitchen knives. We made sure it can cut through any ingredient with ease, making it a perfect all-around kitchen knife.

4) Made With Premium Wood Handles

When designing the handle of the knife, we wanted something as comfortable to use as it was stylish. Our 100% wood handle is formed to the shape of your hand and is smooth as silk. Available in olive and walnut:

5) Offered At A Fair Price

We are offering our knife at wholesale. No retail markups. No distribution markups. By selling to you directly we can maintain the highest quality and construction while offering a fair price point.

For our early supporters, we are offering a Kickstarter wholesale price at $98 including the knife and free shipping (US). Shipping to Canada is $15 and to the rest of the world $20 for a single knife. Click on the reward to see all details.

6) It's Made By Hand With The Highest Quality & Craftsmanship

All of our knives are manufactured in Solingen, Germany, a city with a knife-making tradition going back hundreds of years. We’ve worked closely with the brilliant knife makers there, learning from their expertise and seeing the manufacturing process firsthand.

Who We Are

Our journey started more than three years ago when we took a radically new approach to making things we love. It's the passion for minimalist design, fantastic functionality and superior quality in products that led us down this path. We’d love your support in bringing our vision of the perfect kitchen knife to life. Thank you!

 

Risks and challenges

Producing anything at high-volume poses a number of problems. With that said we're not starting from square one. In late 2015, we went on Kickstarter and raised over $250,000 to build The Quarter Century Jacket. True, we've never made knives but we completed all sampling and we're confident that these knives will exceed all your expectations. We believe in transparency and communication, so our backers will be the first to know about any unplanned hurdles or delays.
