"Peak performance never looked so good at this price." Chef Clément


Made with 7Cr17 High Carbon Stainless steel, offering a great balance of sharp edge retention and durability.


Incorporates a protective bolster that travels gradually onto the blade face for better comfort and control.


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


Perfectly shaped Ebony Wood Handle that fits comfortably in any chef's hand and allows for a sturdy and comfortable grip.

30 Day Money Back Guarantee


Incorporates a protective bolster that will allow you to hone your knife without any risk or potential injury. 


The ergonomic handle allows you to have a comfortable relaxed grip, ready to do some fun tasks for long periods of time. 


The steel goes through a final polish to reveal a unique pattern.

How do I care for my knife?

Our new knives should last forever if you take care of them. Good knives should never be put in the dishwasher. Always hand wash and dry right away. Never leave them sitting in water for extended periods. They can rust and the pakkawood can swell. The reason is that good knives are not made from pure stainless steel. They are made from a mixture of high carbon steel and stainless steel. The high carbon allows the knife to be sharpened and the stainless keeps it from staining. However, the detergents and heat in a dishwasher are too much for the mixture and all good knives will rust in the dishwasher.


Always use the honing steel to realign the edge before use. This should be done before every use. The honing steel straightens the edge. It does not sharpen. The diamond steel should be used approximately once a month or when your knives don’t feel sharp after using the honing steel. The diamond steel has powdered diamond dust to remove a small amount of metal to get your edge back. If the diamond steel and honing steel doesn’t work its time to use a V sharpener. The V sharpener will strip off the old edge and put on a new one. But try not to use it too often as it will wear your blade away after time.
