X50CrMoV15. That's a fancy name for “really good steel.” This German, high-carbon steel has become a staple in knife blades from high-end European manufacturers. This specific type of steel can take on a razor sharp edge and hold that edge through prolonged use. With superior corrosion resistance and high durability, this is one of the world’s classic steels. Knifey uses this steel in our custom-designed, professional-grade knives and delivers them, freshly sharpened, straight to your door on your schedule.
The majority of Western-style knives have edge angles of nearly 25 degrees which increases slicing resistance and drag. The cutting edge on our knives is razor sharp at 17 degrees which means you can cut more accurately at a faster and safer pace. Whether dicing onions or cutting through a butternut squash, Knifey knives are up to the task at hand.
We’re knife people. We’ve spent years sharpening all styles of knives and know that a quality handle is a key component to providing the best product on the market. We’ve tested many handle materials and found an optimal premium fiberglass composite that tops the charts in terms of comfort, grip, looks, and durability. Our handle is designed with additional width for comfort and good knuckle clearance above the cutting surface. While most knives utilize cheaper alternatives such as plastic or wood, our G10 handle provides superior grip in both wet and dry conditions.
Knifey knives check all the boxes. Our tapered bolster helps create a more comfortable pinch grip. Our chef knives provide incredible balance between the blade and handle for less fatigue. A symmetrical grind makes the knife comfortable for both left and right handed folks, alike. All of these little details combine to make a great set of knives.
