Samurai steel sword

FROM SAMURAIS TO CHEFS

After Japan's Meiji Restoration in 1868, the samurai were banned from carrying swords. In response, the majority of sword-smiths refocused their skill to cutlery production. Kyoku Knives trace their ancestry to the mighty katanas of feudal Japan.

Japanese steel forging

BEAUTY & BEAST

Our Daimyo series is forged from Globally-Sourced VG10 steel, which makes it far thinner, harder, and sharper than Western knives. Additionally, the 67-layered Damascus steel makes possible the creation of custom designs in the blade during temperament, giving our knives stunning, unique textures.

Our knives are not from Japan. We want to make that clear from the outset. The steel in our Daimyo Series is not Japanese VG10. Instead, we use Globally-Sourced VG10, chemically the same thing but at a fraction of the cost.

Why are Japanese VG10 knives so expensive? The Japanese government restricts the sale of VG10 steel in order for Japan-based brands to have a competitive and financial advantage over other knife makers. When you buy official “Japanese” VG10 knives, you’re paying hundreds more for the name rather than the quality. While the steel used in our Daimyo Series has the same chemical composition as that of Japanese VG10, ours is globally sourced. This means we can deliver knives of VG10 quality without the price associated with the name.

Kyoku aims to not only deliver high-quality knives but also be honest, open, and transparent about who we are. We aren’t here to deceive you with slick marketing like other brands with a Japanophile veneer. Simply put, we love the style of these products and think they should be available to all seeking a knife that cuts like a dream at a price that makes sense.
