Don't sacrifice comfort for good looks,

It's possible to have both.

A Piece Of Modern Art

That Is Unique To You

When you purchase the Kiritsuke knife, you become an owner of a unique one-of-one knife in the entire world. No kidding, there's no two identical knives of this type. This is due to the unique way we design our octogonal handle, using a process of abstract wood coloration.

That's enough showboating, it's time to

Meet The Knife.

  • 8" Chef Blade
  • Comfortable Wooden Handle

The High Quality Knife,

Priced Right.

Now you might be asking yourself: "Is this a joke? How are they able to provide top quality with half the price? We'd feel the same way. 

It's actually fairly simple: 

In most knife making business, there are a lot of middle men, from retailing to part manufacturing, each of them take a cut of the total sale price. By cutting out these middle-men, we can achieve the same quality and profitability, for half-the price. 

We Get It, 

Trust Takes Time.

Shopping online can feel daunting and scary, especially without seeing the product first. 

Luckily, we made it easier for you.

This seems too good to be true ...

Here's why you shouldn't buy this knife

Although packed with great features, our knife set might not be for everyone. 
We certainly don't want to disappoint some of you cooks there.

I've never heard of Yakushi Knives before, why should I trust you?

You might not have heard of us but we’re definitely not new in the knife making business. Our team was formed in order to find a solution to the high prices that the Japanese knife making industry has set as a standard. We wanted to find a way to create high quality products while keeping the prices affordable for the general cooks out there. We believe we have achieved that having served many 10,000+ customers so far and more to come.

There are $40 knives out there on the market now, why should I pay more for this?

We even stumbled into $20 knives, it's crazy how low these can go for now. However we believe in spending more for higher quality products and materials, knives that will stand the test of intense cooking sessions while maintaining their edge. If you’re looking for the cheapest and low quality knife on the market, this knife might not be for you.  

I don't need a set, I just need one knife.

If you're already equipped with most knife types in our sets, and most importantly if you're satisfied with them, then a set might not be for you.

Luckily, we also produce individual knives that you can look at in our Single Knives collection.

Very impressive Yakushi Knives!!

BEST BIRTHDAY gift I've ever got from my brother! As I pursue my passion for cooking I know this will be a great tool. The blade design is so cool! Plus I'm really amazed with it's sharpness. Like today I used it cutting meats and it cuts so easily. I also like the tip of this knife. Very impressive Yakushi Knives!!

Incredible craftsmanship!

You will not be disappointed with this product! Stunned to see the knife when I opened the box. It's so sharp and the design is so cool. I really like the blade patterns and the handle is so unique. Best thing about this knife is that you can do the rocking motion when cutting!

Joseph a.S.W.
Superb cutting tool, beautiful design

Bought the set of two knives and couldn’t be happier. Does everything you ever could expect from superior quality knife. Razor sharp, well balanced and gorgeous hand-made handles. The packaging was top notch too and included a guard for safely storing the knife. Stop thinking about it and buy one (or two)!

Dave R.

The unboxing experience is so good! I highly recommend this to all who love to cook!


Cool looking knife. The blade shape makes the rocking motion so smooth. Thanks!

Still unsure? 

We tried answering most questions below.

I am a lefty, can I still use the Damascus Kiritsuke Knife?

Definitely, being equipped with a double-beveled blade, the Kiritsuke does not discriminate against lefties and allows us all to make strong use of it during cooking sessions.

How do you care for your knives? 

Our Kiritsuke knives are extremely easy to care for and will last the test of time. That being said, please make sure to do your part by hand-washing and drying the knife after every use, avoiding the dishwasher. You can optionally treat the wooden handle with a couple of drops of food-grade oil to retain it's shine for the years to come.

How many knives do I need? 

It depends, do you usually cook by yourselves? Do you like to cook as a couple of a family? Depending on your cooking habits, you might have to get one, two or maybe three of the Damascus chef knives, so that they can be shared with your friends and family for faster and more efficient cutting. Luckily, we're running a promotion now, if you purchase a set of Damascus Chef knives, you can save up to $75 in total!
