Meet Your New
Our handcrafted blades make cooking a joy and put centuries of rich history into the palm of your hand.
Magnetic Knife Stand
There are powerful recessed magnetic bars within the knife board that keep knives in place and the angled design allows it to sit flush on any countertop. Made from Acacia Wood.
8" Chef's Knife
Considered the workhorse of any high-level kitchen, the chef knife exudes class and practicality, wrapped in an aesthetic bow. Its beautiful broad blade makes cutting a breeze, and is a staple in every kitchen for slicing and dicing all manner of veg and meats.
Sharpening Whetstone 1000/6000
The stone comes with two grit variations: The coarser 1000-grit side gets your dull blade sharp as original quickly; while the 6000-grit polishes and smooths the sharpened knife, finishing the sharpening process. The base is made from bamboo and padded with rubber, keeping it in place.
7" Santoku Knife
This stunning general-purpose blade steals the show with its elegant design, durability, and ease of use. Perfect for precision tasks in the kitchen, boasting a masterful ability to slice, dice, and mince your way to mouthwatering meals.
5" Utility Knife
The Utility Knife is an all-purpose kitchen knife and generally the entry level blade for the beginning cooking enthusiast. It is lighter and smaller than the chef or santoku offering more control for the less experienced chef.
7" Cleaver Knife
With an outrageously sharp edge and a hefty weight, there’s nothing the Vegetable Cleaver Knife can’t handle. A seamless blend of form and function make this a heavy-duty blade with an underlying elegance.
One Slice Can
Change Your Life
Our story began by chance, after stumbling upon a humble chef’s knife while traveling through Japan. After bringing it back to New Jersey, one slice was all it took to realize that there are levels to cooking, and those who get the most enjoyment from it use the best equipment.
The difference in efficiency and precision was night and day. Fast forward to today and we’re frontrunning the positive shift in cooking standards with unparalleled handcrafted blades.
Are you ready to fall in love with cooking again? It all starts with a slice.

High-quality, Reliable Damascus Kitchen Knives
If you're looking for the best in Damascus steel knives, there's no better place you could look. Knives don't always need to come with a hefty price to deliver the kind of results you want to see in your kitchen.
We offer a host of high-quality Damascus knives to help you handle your business in the kitchen with ease. Our prices are incredibly competitive, thanks to strategic partnerships with our material providers to ensure that we deliver these Damascus blades to our clients affordably.
What's the Knives Et Cetera Damascus Chef Knife Difference?
Affordability is one thing, but what else makes a Damascus blade so special? Do you even need one in your kitchen? Well, here are a few things for you to think about:
We're not saying you should throw out your full cutlery of blades, but we are saying that our Damascus blade is likely to render them unnecessary. It's hard to dispute the effectiveness of Damascus steel knives.
A blade may seem like a simple tool, but you'd be surprised at the difficulty that comes with using some kitchen knives, especially when they're quite sharp. Our quality knives don't fall under that category, as they're just as beginner-friendly as they are conducive to expert use. The professional design makes chopping, slicing, and other cutting methods much simpler to achieve.
Razor-sharp Damascus knives such as these often command a high price. The said price for such products often rivals a whole cutlery set, but we believe that quality blades can be much more on the affordable side. If we haven't hammered that point home yet, have a look around our shop. Even if you were to check for Damascus knives on competing sites, you'd be hard-pressed to find similar quality Damascus steel knives for the same kind of price that we're offering here.
The Damascus Steel Design
When you think of an elite kitchen knife, what comes to mind? Maybe you start thinking about the material, how long the knife is, and even its sharpness. All these factors contribute to either the durability, the cut, or both. Damascus steel knives have been making the rounds for a long time. Here are a few reasons why you should think about picking one up from us.
Japanese Style Core with 67 Layers
Note that not every Damascus steel knife has the same composition of layers. The modern style highlighted here boasts 67 layers of Damascus steel. So, you can imagine that your purchase is going to be staying with you for some time. These layers are used to wrap the center, which is akin to a VG-10 Japanese steel core.
These material choices are all rolled into Damascus knives of varying lengths but all with ultra versatile designs. The Japanese inspired steel-like core also has a high carbon design, which makes for an incredibly sharp blade, guaranteeing more precise cuts throughout.
A full-tang design with the blade running throughout the length of the handle offers a better grip and greater durability. Our Damascus steel knives have a beautiful design that uses a single piece of steel running from the tip to the butt. Additionally, the handle is made of a sturdy material that yields a non-stick grip. The material choices contribute to the weight as much as it does the finish. Feeling it is enough to indicate the quality of the product you're dealing with.
Contemporary Design with a Beautiful Pattern
A Damascus steel knife is one of the best knives you can get your hands on for the home kitchen. Our catalog guarantees you a wide variety of choices. From the sharp blade edge to the handle, the materials that make up all our knives create a look that brings flair to your kitchen. Imagine automatically looking like a professional by having the layered knife in your hand.
Even though the Damascus design takes advantage of the reliability of the traditional forging, it combines this with modern developments, which are visible in each layer, the sharp cutting edge that prevents food from sticking to the blade, the blade pattern, and even the polished finish.
