“Quality, character, and affordability are the most forward characteristics of the Forge to Table product line. As a chef, I know I can depend on these knives to stay sharp and perform when I need it most.” - Sam B, Professional Chef and Forge To Table Customer


Our VG10 high-carbon stainless steel is more resilient than pure carbon steel, yet it sharpens with ease, allowing a finer edge. The durability of VG10 steel prevents dulling and rusting. The "kurouchi", or blacksmith finish, is the signature of our forge in Southeast China.
