Your kitchen will never be the same again.

KAN in Japanese means intuition, perception, or having a ‘sixth sense’. We created a knife that transforms your time and tasks in the kitchen into an experience. Having a high-quality knife turns what used to be a chore into a pleasurable experience that you will look forward to; it is truly that big of a difference.

Three main things make the KAN Core chef knife perfect for the aspiring home chef:

Seriously Hard Core

The microexamination of a cross-section of a KAN Core chef knife shows how the VG-10 core is clad by 66 stainless steel layers. The importance of the core can’t be emphasized enough (and please beware of fake VG-10 knives), as both the composition and heat treatment of the core will determine how hard, strong, and brittle your blade will be.

Our knives are treated to approximately 60 on the Rockwell hardness scale. Much softer, and you won’t be able to retain a sharp edge for long. Much harder, and your blade will chip under normal usage. That said, please do not use a KAN Core chef knife on frozen foods, bones, granite counter tops, etc. Just like you wouldn’t take a Ferrari off-roading in the mud and rocks, please protect your blade’s edge with care–it took a lot of work to get it the way it is.

A Work of Art in Your Kitchen

A Pleasure to Use

If you have never had an extremely sharp knife, it is hard to describe what a difference it makes. Instead of the harsh, whacking sounds of a duller blade hitting the cutting board, you hear and feel the effortless slicing through your food. It is honestly a joy to cut up a bag full of vegetables!

A Pleasure to Hold

We balanced the knife right at the bolster to encourage a pinch grip. The control this gives you not only makes it safer to use, but also makes it easier on your arm and hand. A well-balanced and weighted knife helps you avoid fatigue, and the KAN Core chef knife nails the proper balance.

A Pleasure to Look At

Whether you choose the hammered finish or want to enjoy the pattern of the damascus layers across the whole width of the blade, the KAN Core chef knife will be as wonderful to behold as it is to use. With every knife having it’s own unique and beautiful layered pattern, along with your choice of a beautiful dark ebony handle or a pitch black G10 composite handle, this knife makes a beautiful addition to any kitchen; you will seriously want to find a place to display it.

Take it from THE expert

We knew we got things right when the J. Kenji Lopez-Alt endorsed our knife with praise and tweets. Kenji has more street cred in the kitchen business than anyone else we know, so when he gave us his stamp of approval, we knew we had arrived. We’re proud of the design and quality we deliver in each of our knives.

So take it from the experts, and see what a difference it makes to have an extremely well-sharpened, well-balanced, and well-built chef knife in your hands. We can’t wait for you to try it!

The core of the 7.9-inch (200mm) KAN Core chef knife is Japanese special steel VG-10. The special makeup of VG-10 allows for a high hardness (59-60 HRC) without becoming brittle. This means our blade can take a very sharp edge and retain it for a long time, yet it also avoids chipping easily.
This core is clad by 66 layers of Damascus stainless steel, giving it strength, corrosion resistance, as well as a beautiful, one-of-a-kind pattern.
We balanced our knives right at the pinch point, so you intuitively use a blade grip (much safer, and much better control).
The Damascus pattern, polished finish and a beautiful dark ebony wood handle all combine to create a work of art you’ll be proud to have in your kitchen.
We strongly recommend that you always hand-wash any good knife, then dry it immediately.
