Bring Colour to your Kitchen, BBQ & Dining Table
Eating with those you know (or even by yourself) can be one of the best moments.
Initially for fun, and now for our business, we make knives and tools to amplify and enjoy dining - wherever you may be.

Japanese Knives by the Koi Team "Bring Colour to your Kitchen".
Spring Hammer Knives
Created in Shannon's fathers' Spring Factory we recently created our first Japanese ripple knife collection - "The Spring Hammer" Collection.
The Spring Hammer imposes small ripples on the knife steel which traps oxygen between the blade and what it is cutting - allowing the element being sliced or chopped to fall from the blade without sticking.
How many knives does your kitchen need?
In the words of famous french chef Jacques Pepin...
“You need 3 knives - a chefs knife, a petty knife and a serrated knife - but I have 105”…

The Australian BBQ Collection

Why invest in a knife or two?
“Your knife does more work, and lasts longer, than your washing machine.” - Leo LeFranc

Building your Collection?
At Koi we have a lot more flexibility when putting together collections. You can start with 1 or 12. We've added some collections we like however if you want something different just come to the shop or give us a buzz :)
What's the best knife?
Easy Question. The chefs knife is the best knife... on Tuesday... but on Wednesday we make a salad... so we want the veg chopper... some days I need a cleaver. Then on Friday....
