In the world of chefs and gourmet food, American blacksmith Bob Kramer is considered to be the greatest American knifemaker in the business. The iconic blacksmith just released the Kramer Knives Shokunin Knife Collection to the delight of culinary artists across the world.

Made exclusively for the Kramer shop in Bellingham, Washington, this set of knives is quite affordable compared to the custom blades the company produces. There are three types of top-tier kitchen knives available: the santoku, nakiri, and chef’s knife. Each one is offered with either beautiful blackwood or cocobolo handles. The Limited Edition Random Damascus Cocobolo Nakiri is one of the highlights of the collection, boasting a blend of 15N20 and 1084 tool steel and a 62 HRC. It has a 6.5-inch blade that’s ground thin and hand-sharpened by Kramer himself. The knife also features a unique Damascus pattern and wood grain design, ensuring you have a one-of-a-kind cutting tool. Proceeds from this collection will go toward creating the Kramer Metal Arts Lab to help future artisans hone their craft. The immaculate knives in the collection start at $1,600.

Purchase: $1,600+
