Bring Your Kitchen to the Next Level
1 of 40 knives currently in our shop | "The Sujihiki"
Batch 1 | Currently Available!
Japanese Damascus 67 | Australian wood handle
The "Damascus 67" collection is a re-incarnation of the first knives we ever made. These knives are made with 67 layer Japanese steel and finished with Australian wooden handles (wood from Mclaren Vale, SA).
These knives remain the most popular knives we've ever made.
* Note - limited handle colour options
The Gyuto Knife | Chefs Knife
The "All Purpose Chefs Knife" ... most popular knife we've ever made!
Avialable - Limited Colour Handle OPtions
The team at Koi host monthly BBQ's at the back of our shed and whilst doing this we design and tinker with the tools needed at a BBQ.
The more we eat the more our collection grows :)
The Barramundi | Fillet Knife
Adding luxury to fish preparation
Currently in Stock | Linited Handle Colours
Australian "Kitchen" Knives & Sets
Our love of knives begun by seeing what is done in Japan but after many years of producing Japanese style knives we decided to make something representing ourselves - Australian style knives.
Our Australian Knives still utilize Japanese steel (AUS10) and are held with Australian wood/resin handles.
The Dingo Knife | All Purpose Oz Knife
The All Purpose Oz knife that has become the most popular local blade.
Batch 2 | Currently in Stock
Spring Hammer | 67 Layer Hammered Damascus
The second collection we made is the "Spring Hammer" Collection. This collection was created in Shannon's fathers' Spring Factory in Woodville (Shannon's father is one of the last qualified blacksmiths in SA).
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 without sticking.
* Note - limited handle colour options
WE HAVE OPTIONS FOR EVERYONE
Batch 5 - Still in construction phase

Knife Sharpening Classes
Learn to work with whetstones in our guided knife sharpening classes. Take your knives from dull to razor sharp with our resident sharpening master, Joao.
When you finish the class you'll leave with an extra sharp knife & a kit to keep it that way.
The SEKI "Stone" Collection
Our most popular knives, reimagined. We have adapted our Japanese Damascus knives with Indestructible G10 handles and Western-style grips.
Pocket Knives | Outdoor Knives
Shannon loves camping and you can't go camping without a pocket knife.
You also need a pocket knife if you shop online - opening a box becomes a joy (not a pain).
Whether its for a gift, a journey in Australia's outback or even opening the daily mail - everyone gets joy from a high end pocket knife.
Koi Industrial Collection
Professional kitchens are tough places. They are even tougher on your tools. We have paired G10 handles with VG10 steel to create a new collection to stand up to the task.
Why invest in a knife or two?

Gifts | If you're worthy
When we started, we were planning on making knives for high-end chefs. We have come to understand that we make more knives for gifts than anything else.
So we have started putting together some collections for those looking for gifts for a recipients that is worthy.
