House of Knives vision is a simple one: to improve the quality of life of all those we encounter through education and innovation. Our goal is to match our customers with quality and functional tools, and to educate them on how to use and maintain their tools. To achieve this, we strive to create an inclusive atmosphere within each of our stores where customers who appreciate quality feel comfortable entering and inquiring about our products and services. If our customers' needs are not obvious, we listen openly, and without prejudice or bias, to help them determine what their needs are and how to fulfill them.
If you cook breakfast, lunch, and dinner, chances are you’re using a knife 2-3 times per day. That’s likely to be more often than you use your own bed in a day! When you buy a kitchen knife, like a bed, it’s important to get something that is excellent quality so you can rely on it day in and day out.
When you have great quality cutlery, you’re comfortable, you’re prepared, and you’re not fighting your tools to do even the simplest tasks.
There's a kitchen knife tailored to do every kitchen task perfectly. And whether your choose a Western or Asian knife, the best one for you will depend on your cooking and cutting style. Once you know which knives you want, check out our Kitchen Knife Accessories for the best and most versatile storage options, to keep your knives safe and attractively displayed.
Knives dull with use when they encounter hard surfaces over and over (like your cutting board). The steel at the edge of your knife is so thin, that when it hits a hard surface, it starts to curl over. That’s what dulls your knife!
To keep your edges sharp, make sure to hone your knives often. Honing with a honing steel won’t sharpen your knife, but it will realign that curled-over edge, and bring it back to sharpness.
When honing no longer keeps your knife razor-sharp, it’s time for a sharpening. Choose from a variety of sharpeners, like whetstones, pull-through sharpeners, electric sharpeners, guided sharpeners, belt sharpeners, pocket sharpeners, sharpening kits, and more. There’s an option for everyone’s skill level, budget, and schedule.
