Our Story


It all started with a bold idea in a factory in 1997.

To make a better knife after we have collected millions of kitchen knife users’ using feedback.

After 19 years of painstaking exploration, we found the recipe of making a better knife. That is, one that inspires us to cook, and encourage us to spread happiness and enjoy life. So in 2016, we establish SHAN ZU brand to do something amazing, something meaningful.


    We sought artisans with years of experience of knife making and knowledge of advanced knife-making techniques. We shared what we had learnt from our customers with them. And they integrate them with their expertise to make every featured knife set that is suitable for everyone across the world and perfect for any occasions.


    We introduce modern thinking and methods after years of learning the rich tradition of knife craft to create beautiful and innovative knives at far greater value than traditional brands. Each knife boasts razor-sharp blade, exceptionally precise cutting, well-balanced design and superior performance.


    We adopts the state-of-the-art facility to make every inspiration happen. We use the premium material, challenge the manufacturing cost, renovate from the ancient craft, and carry the craftsman spirit to create every knife worthy of our brand. We pursue the highest standards professionally, personally, and ethically.

  • Believing that customers are the smartest group who can tell whether the material good or bad, the crafts good or bad. When making every knife, we pay attention to every single tiny detail, and make every tiny part fit perfectly. We aim to produce every knife with a soul that can connect with its users, and inspire them.

    Fame and profits alone seldom equal respect. Respect comes from doing the right things in the right way and building something that matters.

  • Customers are always the direction we move forward. Our goal is not to sell thousands of millions of knives, but to “sell” cooking pleasure and life happiness to thousands of millions of people across the world.

    We are enthusiasts who love what we do.

    Most importantly, we Creat Greatness Never Compromise.
