Versatility and Strength in the Kitchen

Yonedas knives are designed to be versatile to get any job in the kitchen done. There is a knife for every major task. Whether you are carving a brisket or a Christmas turkey or taking on jobs like chopping vegetables or peeling fruit, one of these beautiful pieces of hardware will fit the bill. Yonedas knives are designed with quality and price in mind. Blades made of 67 layers of stainless steel, a VG10 core and pakka wood handles. These knives, with the right care and attention, should last you a lifetime. Break these out of their cases at a dinner party and you are sure to impress your guests with your knife work and your hardware in the kitchen. Because we used harden steel to make these knives, they will get extremely sharp and stay sharp longer than most standard kitchen knives. That’s the real difference between a Yonedas and everything else.

Build Quality

World Class Canadian Engineered Quality at Affordable Pricing

In order to keep our pricing at a reasonable rate, we hired the best factories in China to produce the molds that created our knives.  All of our knife samples are tested by the #1 Metallurgical testing facility in Western Canada, Acuren Engineering.  We believe that price is important when selecting a knife, but so is quality.  That is the reason we went through rigorous testing of our knives to confirm the quality. We put each knife through a series of tests including:

  • Metallographic cross section testing
  • Hardness testing
  • Destructive Compositional Analysis
  • Semi-Quantitative X-Ray Fluorescence Technique

Through this rigorous series of engineering tests, we were given Canadian stamped engineering specifications to confirm the quality of our blades.  We hope that you will put them through your own testing, but in the kitchen instead of the laboratory.
