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.

The High Quality Set,
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.

Here's why you shouldn't buy this knife
I've never heard of Yakushi Knives before, why should I trust you?
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.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It,
Cooks Around The World Have Spoken.
I bought one for myself and bought another for my best friend! This knife is gorgeous! I also like the customer service and fast shipping. My best friend loved the knife as well! She said she loved the packaging and how sharp it was and ready for use when she got it. Thanks to the Yakushi Team!
I can't help but stare at the excellence and craftsmanship of this knife. It looks amazing with the patterns of the blade and the handle is so unique. I've been using this everyday since I got it last week and I'm even more blown away when I noticed that it is still super sharp as new!
I got the best deal ever! I got 2 Damascus Chefs and saved $30. As it is, the price is already low. But this makes this superb knife worth every penny. Both knives that I got are unique from each other and they are very sharp! I gave the other one to my mom and she was so happy as I am with this great product. THANK YOU!!
I didn't expect I'll get this high quality knife for this low price. Thank you so much for making this possible. Love it!
I used this knife for my cooking chanel for the first time and I liked it so much. It's comfortable, super sharp and looks awesome!
I bought this knife with low expectations. I was expecting a simple, but good looking knife. I received it, and it came with a blade cover and a nice box. It came sharp, clean, and perfect. I took it to work and used it all day without much fatigue. It’s still pretty heavy, but lighter than a traditional German steel knife. Do be aware that if you’re cutting any amount of green leafy herbs, it will stain until you give it a solid scrub.
TLDR: Do it! It is a fantastic knife, and I’ll hopefully be purchasing more in the future!

I am a lefty, can I still use the Damascus Chef?
Definitely, being equipped with a double-beveled blade, the Damascus Chef does not discriminate against lefties and allows us all to make strong use of it during cooking sessions.
