It's time to upgrade your time in the kitchen

Make cooking a joy, not a chore

Take it from the pros:

It’s a great looking knife. Perfectly balanced blade and handle, and nice and sharp even out of the box. It’s a dreamy knife. If you’re in the market for a really great, high-end knife, this is the one to go with.

It’s a nice knife. I really like the weight and feel. Very all-around workhorse profile.

These are the knives I absolutely love. They’re fabulous knives. They’re super sharp, you don’t need to sharpen them hardly ever. Highly recommend them.

What our recent customers are saying:

Alex says:

I got this knife after years of searching for the perfect knife. It is amazing. Cuts so smooth I can barely feel it. I have been asked numerous times how much I spent and when I tell them, they are shocked. Worth way more than what it sells for. Looking forward to buying more knives for my collection.

Roy van der Weijden says:

This knife is scary. So sharp, and also hard and balanced. Cook with safety shoes in case you drop it. It will slice through everything it touches.

James Wyeth says:

I’ve held off on writing a review until I’ve used the knife enough to truly know what it’s like. I’ve used it daily for about 5/6 months now and not once has it failed me. It’s perfectly balanced and well weighted.

The blade handles incredibly well and it’s always enjoyable to use it. I’ve had to run it over a steel once or twice but never sharpen it. It’s remained tack sharp as it was when I got it out the box. Shipping internationally Barney was fantastic and letting me know what was happening and when. Always able to reply to my messages.

Great Product, Great service.

Matthew Macias says:

My son got me this knife for Christmas. It is the best kitchen knife I have owned. It cuts quickly, predictably and perfectly. It’s incredibly sharp and looks amazing. The pictures don’t do justice to the Damascus look of the blade. The only thing I don’t like about it is that it makes me realize my other knives look and cut like trash. My future knife purchase will be from KAN. Ordering one for my brother as well.

Dennis C says:

This was my first knife I purchased before I bought a knife bundle (6″, 5″ and the bread knife). This one seriously makes me happy every time I need to do meal prep or other tasks in the kitchen. The weight is so glorious when cutting, chopping, or slicing. I never had a decent knife before so this has been a complete joy getting to know and use such a high caliber blade. It brings a smile to my face every time I go to take it out, and after I’m done wiping/washing, drying and placing it back, I think to myself, ‘Wow, what a knife!’ Thanks Barney, loving it!
