The Sad Secret About
Chef’s Knives

The Sad Secret About Chef’s Knives

Even expensive knives go dull, making cooking even harder.

Virtually every chef agrees that a sharp, well-balanced Chef’s Knife is the essential workhorse for any kitchen.

Every knife — whether it costs $10 or $200 — will be razor sharp the first time you use it. But eventually they all will become dull, making normal tasks difficult, and tough tasks impossible.

No gimmicks, and no marketing BS. Just a high-end chef’s knife made with premium steel — that will stay sharper for longer — sold for a fair and affordable price.

Why Some Knives Get
Dull Faster

Why Some Knives Get Dull Faster

All knives become subtly damaged, but cheap blades become damaged faster.

Your knife’s performance comes down to its cutting edge. A sharp knife’s blade is angled down to a fine point at a microscopic level. With regular use, this edge becomes subtly warped, bent, chipped, or blunted.

Knives with poor quality steel will experience this damage much more quickly. As a result, you’re forced to struggle while making even basic cuts.

What to Know Before You Buy A Chef’s Knife

This is what matters most. Anything else may be extras that don't add value.

Steel Quality

Premium steels that have a high carbon content tend to stay sharper longer and remain more durable over time.

Comfort

Second is comfort. How does it feel in your hand? Make sure it has a comfortable handle, for easy maneuvering.

The Importance of a Great Knife

See for yourself why Misen is first in its class.

What Makes a Great Knife?

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.

Stays Sharp & Durable

Stays Sharp & Durable

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 qualities 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.

Steel & Carbon Balance

Choosing the right steel is a delicate balancing act: too much hardness creates a brittle knife, while too little means a blade will dull fast.

With 2x the carbon content of steel used by some competitors, the AUS-10 steel in our Chef’s Knife is the perfect sweet spot that’ll keep your knife strong and sharp over time.

Premium AUS-10 Steel

The Chef’s Knife is made with AICHI AUS-10 steel, which offers an even better balance between lasting sharpness and durability with 2X the carbon content of some other “premium” knives.

15° 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.

Expertly Designed

Expertly Designed

We spent four years developing this knife because every little thing matters. And partly because we’re a bit insane. From sourcing materials, to finding the optimal blade angle, no detail was overlooked.

Hand Tested By Professionals

Hand Tested By Professionals

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 comfortable to hold, easy to maneuver, sharp enough to power through even the toughest foods, and a blade that stays sharper, longer.

We Could Charge a Lot, But We’d Prefer Not To

We Could Charge a Lot, But We’d Prefer Not To

We could easily charge $150 for a knife like some other companies based on the quality and design. But $75 is fair.

By partnering closely with our factories and selling directly to you online, we’re able to offer incredible cookware at wholesale pricing. Better materials, lower price. It’s a simple maxim that we take seriously at Misen.

Don't Take Our Word For It
