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:
Note: The handle wood color might vary slightly in our final production. We are using real wood and are unable to control the grain and wood character. Thank you for your understanding!
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.
End Grain Walnut Cutting Board (Add-On)
Our end grain Walnut cutting board is both beautiful and functional. Designed to protect the sharpest blades, the board also provide stability during use and look great to keep out on the counter (Dimensions: 12” x 16” x 1 ½”).
Add $65 to your existing pledge (plus $9 for US shipping or $45 for international shipping) to receive this cutting board in addition to your knife.
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.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
