Stylish, stunningly gorgeous, and adorned with elegant laser-etched end caps, our Dynasty Series knives and utensils were lovingly designed with balanced and ergonomic grips for amazing comfort, performance, and safety, along with shockingly sharp cutting edges. Our Dynasty Series blades are ferociously sharp and made from our own specially formulated German ThyssenKrupp 1.4116 Stainless Steel for greatly enhanced corrosion, rust resistance, and steel strength, due in part to a high order of Chromium included in the steel’s composition.



Distinguished by the eye-catching subtle beauty of their finely etched chromed steel, our Ronin Series high-carbon 7Cr17MoV stainless steel blades are strikingly sharp and exquisitely etched over in an elegant pattern reminiscent of the classic Japanese Seigaiha pattern (waves layered from concentric circles), which represents surges of good luck. Beautifully adorned with two gorgeous marbled resin bands reminiscent of twin moons or celestial wedding rings, Ronin Series knives come equipped with extremely durable mirror-polished Pakkawood handles.



Sleek. Gorgeous. Ferociously formidable. Samurai Series knives have been designed to be fast, aerodynamic, and highly engineered for precision and maneuverability. Like a surgeon’s scalpel, they are relentlessly sharp and made from our specially formulated high-carbon 7Cr17MoV stainless steel with added Vanadium for higher strength, wear resistance, and toughness. Samurai Series knives come equipped with an extremely durable mirror-polished Pakkawood handle. They have high water-resisting capabilities, won't crack or split, and are easy to clean and maintain. The sumptuous handles, with their ultra fine grained texture, make for a knife to not only admire, but also hold.



Stately and sublime, our Japanese AUS-8 steel blades meet the standard of a tough, rust-resistant knife with a significantly long lasting razor-sharp edge. Carbon and Molybdenum explains rigity and high wear resistance, Chromium and Nickel increases mechanical strength and edge retention, and Manganese helps increase hardness, reduce structural wear, and making for easy sharpening. Alluring and gorgeous, with a visually stunning pattern that changes with the light like a hologram, our carbon fiber + G10 handle is arguably the most qualitative of our series. By infusing the carbon fiber with military-grade G10 thermoset, we've created a handle not only incredibly robust, but with resilience to thrive in the rigorous environment of the kitchen.



Gorgeous. Elegant. Ferociously formidable with unparalleled craftsmanship. Expertly designed by our master artisans, the Spectre Series knives feature perfectly balanced and ergonomic grips for amazing comfort and safety, shockingly sharp cutting edges, & are crafted to reflect centuries of traditional Japanese knife design along with cutting-edge nitrogen-cooled forging techniques.Adorned with an opulent mosaic pin made of brass and copper, our mirror-polish imported Spanish Pakkwood handles feel as if they were made just for you.
