These Remarkable Japanese Knives Just Became Kickstarter’s Most-Funded Knife Set Of All Time

A good knife can mean all the difference in the world when you’re in the kitchen. You definitely have to make sure your tool is up to par, lest you hurt yourself prepping food. If you’re in the market for a new set, you might want to take a look at these futuristic looking blades that just made Kickstarter history.

Named the Kuroi Hana, the beautifully designed knives just became the most funded set of knives of all time on Kickstarter, reports BroBible.

At the time of publication, more than $1.8 million has been pledged towards an initial goal of $32,236. It’s likely they’ll hit $2 million with only a few days left to go.

Using 67 layers of premium Japanese steel, the knives were designed by London designer Christian Bird, drawing inspiration from local architecture. During the forging process, the blades create a mesmerizing pattern that only comes from Japanese steel. This makes each blade as unique as a snowflake or a fingerprint.

You can get the complete 6-piece set for a pledge of $293 which, according to Foodbeast’s Reach Guinto, is a steal.
