About the United States


SHAN ZU is passionate about food, cooking, and making products that enhance those experiences. Especially knives - very sharp knives! Like all zealous epicureans, we love to create rare dishes that require preparation from scratch, a process that inevitably tarnishes the delicate edges of any cutlery. Sharpening our collection of expensive kitchen knives was a tedious chore that constantly haunted our to-do list. Knowing that our torment was not unique, we set out to find a solution, only to discover that there was none. Necessity being the mother of all inventions, so we decided to become cutlers.

After countless design revisions, material analysis and durability testing, we have come up with a set of beautifully crafted Damascus steel kitchen knives that we are excited to share with home cooks across the country. Elegant, sharp and extremely robust, they have been designed to withstand the strongest food acids, hard water and even accidental dishwasher safe! This means we spend less time maintaining our favorite kitchen tools and more time cooking, without interruption.

  1. We are looking for craftsmen with rich experience in knife making. We share with them what we have learned from our customers. And they incorporate them into their expertise to make every set of knives that fits everyone around the world and is perfect for any occasion.
  2. We introduce state-of-the-art methods to create beautiful and innovative knives at a price far higher than traditional brands. Each knife features a razor-sharp blade, exceptional precision, balanced design and superior performance.
  3. We adopt modern facilities to realize every inspiration. We use top quality materials, we renovate the traditional manufacture of knives and we perpetuate the spirit of the craftsman to create knives worthy of our brand. We strive for the highest professional, personal and ethical standards.

We are convinced that customers are the smartest and that they can distinguish a good or bad material from a good or bad job. When making each knife, we pay attention to every little detail and make sure that every little piece fits perfectly. Our goal is to produce knives that have a soul, that can connect with their users and inspire them.

Fame and profits are rarely synonymous with respect. Respect comes from doing the right things the right way and building something important.

Customers are always the direction we go. Our goal is not to sell thousands of millions of knives, but to "sell" the pleasure of cooking and the happiness of living to thousands of millions of people around the world.

We are passionate people who love what we do.

Most importantly, we create greatness and never compromise.
