"...perfectly balanced...premium materials...beautifully designed."

"It's the best knife I've ever used - and it's affordable."

Over $1 Million raised on Kickstarter (Thank you Backers!)

The Only Knives You’ll Ever Need.

You don’t need a bulky 15-piece set. With just a few high-quality knives, you can tackle almost any cooking task your heart desires.

Our sets come in three or five pieces. Each knife is made from premium high-carbon stainless steel, and is thoughtfully designed to feel good in your hand and last a lifetime.

It’s not just our knives that are thoughtfully designed — we carefully curate our knife sets to ensure that you have every knife you need, and nothing you don’t.

Features

Premium Japanese Steel

Misen knives are made with AICHI steel, which offers an excellent balance of sharp edge retention and durability and has significantly more carbon content than other “premium” knives.

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.

15º 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.

One terrific set of blades!

I have been looking for a set of knives, and more specifically a chef's knife. Most chef knife manufacturers produce great knives normally at a premium price. My experience with this Misen set of knives I bought recently has not disappointed either my chef wife nor myself. The knives are perfectly balanced in weight and symmetry. When you first pick up the chef's knife, it has a feel of complementarity with your hand, neither too large nor too heavy. If held properly, it fits your hand as if it was designed for you. The blade is very nicely tooled to give the cook a feeling of competency and dexterity as you cut through various foods. The knife slides through without effort, and the handle remains in the palm of your hand as if it was made to be part of you. Thank you Misen for a well designed and beautiful knife.
