You Shouldn't Have to spend
A paycheck on quality knives.
Yakushi Knives™ produces and provides people with premium quality knives and accessories at honest prices.
The brand was formed by two cooking enthusiasts looking to find a solution to the incredibly high prices that the Japanese knife industry has set as a standard. We've been experimenting and testing many knives and materials before finding the perfect combination of class and performance.
Serving quality knives to over +5000 customers a year, we believe we are getting closer and closer to our goal of making high markups obsolete.
What makes Yakushi Knives™ great?
We spend a lot of time researching the best possible materials for our knife-making process.
When it comes to knives, comfort and beautiful design go hand in hand. We love obsessing about how to achieve this.
Cut the middlemen = better tools, at a lower price.
A Short Story From Our Founder
"I've always been fond of the Japanese knife-making industry.
The quality, look and feel of those knives really set them apart from the rest of the pack.
While cooking with a friend who owned a Shun knife, I got excited to get myself one and start cooking with it. Upon arriving at the retailer, I was shocked to hear that the price for a regular Shun Chef Knife was $285 at that time. Since I couldn't afford it, I just turned around and went back home.
However, this feeling started bubbling inside me: "Why are those knives that expensive? And is there a way to make them cheaper?" It turns out that when you buy a Japanese knife, there are loads of middlemen who take a percentage cut of the final sale price, forcing the prices higher. Not to mention, you also pay for the name of the brand.
What if I just wanted to buy a solid, high-quality, good-looking Damascus Knife? Can I do so at a reasonably honest price?
This is the beginning of my story with Yakushi Knives."
