Any professional chef can tell you that their number one most important tool in the kitchen is a knife. That’s why anyone who’s remotely serious about cooking should get themselves at least one really good chef’s knife. And you can’t do much better than the Japanese Hinoki S1 Gyuto.

Made by 3rd generation master bladesmiths in Osaka, Japan – these absolutely stunning cutting tools are crafted over the course of 103 production steps from start to finish. That includes making their blades from a high-carbon steel known as White Steel #1 – a material as close as it comes to that once used in the creation of Samurai swords. After bringing that steel up to 1,000 degrees Celsius and hammering out every single imperfection, it’s then attached to a beautifully crafted minimalist handle crafted from your choice of charred walnut, European oak, or American walnut. The final result is equal parts the tool of an artist and a work of art itself. But this level of craftsmanship doesn’t come without a price, as these knives run for $400 each.

Purchase: $400
