What Makes Misen Great

The Misen Short Chef's Knife is made with premium AICHI AUS-10 steel.

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.

The sloped bolster on the Misen Short Chef's knife provides more room for your fingers to form a proper "pinch grip".

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.

The Misen Short Chef's Knife is cut at an acute 15 degree edge angle.

15° Blade Angles

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

Everything You Need to Know

How long will this knife stay sharp?

It really depends on how often you use the knife, and what items you’re cutting. When tested in the rigors of a professional kitchen, the Misen knife outperformed brands that cost 30-50% more. However, no knife — including Misen’s — will stay sharp forever. Which is why all our knives come with free sharpening for life. When the blade starts to dull, we’ll have our expert sharpeners bring it back to its original glory for you, free of charge.

Does this knife require special care?

Misen high-end knives are extremely easy to care for. Avoid the dishwasher, wash and dry after use, and you’ll never have an issue with your knife.

What are your blades made from?

We craft our Chef’s Knife with premium Japanese AUS-10 high-carbon stainless steel for two main reasons. First, it’s a steel that offers an excellent balance between toughness, durability, and razor sharpness. Second, it has 2x the carbon content of some other “premium” brands, which helps the edge stay noticeably sharper for a longer time.

How can your knife be as good as other high-end knives if it costs so much less?

Most knives cost so much because of traditional retail markups and other fees. You’d be shocked to know how little many well-known “premium” knives actually cost to make. By partnering closely with our factories and selling directly to you online, we’re able to offer an incredible knife at wholesale pricing with absolutely zero markups. Better materials, lower price.

Does it make sense to buy one knife, and not a set?

The single most important tool in your kitchen is the chef’s knife — it’s the workhorse you reach for most often. Investing in one great knife now will change your cooking for life. We actually designed our chef’s knife to replace entire knife sets; with a 15º blade angle and hybrid Japanese/German design, this knife can do 99% of your kitchen cutting.

But if you’re interested in a set, we offer 3- and 5-piece sets including our other knives — including Paring, Serrated, Santoku, and Utility — in addition to the Chef’s Knife.

How does your warranty and trial work?

We’re 100% confident you’ll love your Misen knife. Confident enough to give you a 60-day in-home trial. If for any reason you’re not satisfied, just send it back for a full refund. All Misen knives come with a lifetime warranty against defects. We will replace any defective knives.

    Good tool knife

    This knife is easier to use than a regular chef knife. Not only is it shorter but it's also lighter and easier on the hand when using it to slice and dice veggies and certain cuts of meat. I highly recommend this knife to those who consider themselves culinary artists!
