Chef’s Knife

Your kitchen’s MVP. For vegetable prep, herb mincing, slicing into baked goods, breaking down and carving meats, and much, much more.

Serrated Knife

The “bread knife.” Effortlessly saws through crusty breads, and is surprisingly ideal for slicing delicate fruits and vegetables, like tomatoes.

Why Are Misen Knives Better?

Extreme Comfort

Our unique sloped bolster makes our knife handle as comfortable as possible to hold — it’s safer to use, and also encourages the right grip.

Durable, Lasting Steel

Premium AUS-10 steel gets the balance of carbon and steel exactly right — so that your knife works at peak performance for as long as possible.

A Sharper Edge
