It wasn’t so long ago that this particular editor was convinced by a to-remain-unnamed world-renowned chef that the Coltellerie Berti cutlery collection was an absolute culinary necessity.

He was correct. They are amazing.

They were also $3,000.

Thankfully, Misen is here to rattle the cutlery cage.

Misen’s new tool has been coined the “Holy Grail of inexpensive chef’s knives.” It’s $65. And it’s of exceptional quality: Razor sharp, long-lasting high-grade steel. Comfortable grip. Ample weight on the hand.

How’d they do it? Same way the Warby Parkers and Dollar Shave Clubs of the world saved you ducats in similarly price-gouged industries: They partner closely with their manufacturers, they only sell direct to consumer and — most importantly — they’re honest.

Eighteen months of testing made for a killer design. Have a gander at the remarkable specs right here.

And as if the world wasn’t already convinced, Misen went and sweetened the deal. Get in on their Kickstarter and they’ll keep your knife sharp…for life.

So check ‘em out. They’re a cut above the rest.
