Description

Ok, so you know you want to upgrade to high-quality knives, but you’re not sure where to start. Those giant blocks with a gazillion knives you’ve never heard of and will never use? Total waste of money. Finally, a curated set with the perfect products to give you the most bang for your buck! Paired with a fresh set of cutting boards. Like peas in a pod.

  • The 8 inch Chef Knife: Made of the highest-quality Japanese steel, it can take on everything from slicing carrots and onions to cutting slabs of melon or squash.
  • 5.5 inch Utility Knife: We reach for this almost every time we step into the kitchen. It’s big enough and razor sharp enough to slice a large beefsteak tomato or to separate a chicken, but small enough to handle more nimble tasks like mincing garlic or cutting up an orange.
  • Plastic Cutting Board Set: Hey, you’ve got to work those knives on something, right? This set won’t slip on the counter, is safe for the blades, and can be lined up side-by-side to make an XL cutting station. X-cellent.

Makes a cutting-edge gift that’ll last a lifetime for anyone who’s just getting set up (graduation, engagement) or starting fresh in a new place (housewarmings, second homes). Or grab it for yourself. #selfcare

*Products may ship separately.

Why it's great

  • Japanese Aus10 Steel: High carbon content means our blades are more durable and stay sharper longer, which makes cutting easier and safer. 
  • Sloped Bolsters: This helps guide your hand to a comfortable, natural grip.
  • Sleek Handles: We designed ‘em to be as ergonomic as they are cool looking.
  • Cutting Boards: Dense plastic with rubber corners so they don’t slip. Two sizes.

    8" chef Knife

    I already have and regularly use this knife. This was a wedding shower present for someone in our family. I wish I had the time to get their wedding date engraved but didn't. Of all my kitchen tools and I am slowly changing everything over to Misen, I use this knife daily.

    So Sharp!

    This knife and the other two I bought are amazingly sharp. I’ve never had a knife so sharp. It’s very easy to cut with it.
