With the help of a fantastic community on Kickstarter we are proud to present the Orient Damascus Series.
The Damascus Series are beyond sharp, beyond strong and beautifully made. The collection includes a complete range for every chefs task.
The Design Process
We knew could improve the design of traditional elite Japanese Knives and with the help of our award winning Designer Roy Gilsing we focused on the ergonomics and the handle design.
Most knives have the grip point at the end of the handle where it unreliably reacts with only the little finger.
Only Orient knives re-focus the handle on a central grip point which interacts with the strongest middle fingers allowing you to push the knife firmly into the palm of the hand for more confident handling.
Our Damascus Series knives feature a 67 layer Damascus Steel Blade. This is 66 layers of SUS410 Japanese Stainless Steel, 33 on each side, protecting an AUS-10 super strength cutting core.
This combination of materials produces a knife blade with breathtaking performance characteristics, delivering supreme sharpness and class leading edge retention.
Our supremely sharp knives are supported with beautiful packaging and a decorative gift box and supplied with a protective locking blade guard (sheath) making them an ideal gift for any cooking enthusiast or professional chef.
For too long, chef’s knives have been sold through expensive stores at hugely inflated prices.
We wanted Orient to be a knife brand that is beautiful in design and available to everyone at a fair and affordable price.
You wont find Orient Knives in retail stores.
Because we only sell online we have no shops or retail staff, no sales agents, no distributors to pay and no pricey exhibitions to attend.
We pass these savings on to you, meaning you can buy great quality heirloom knives at a fraction of the high street price.
