At Koi Knives, we take great pride in producing high-quality knives that are made to last.

Based in Adelaide, we offer a variety of beautifully crafted knives that are made with high-quality materials and attention to detail.

Support a Local Adelaide Business

By choosing to buy a knife from Koi Knives, you're supporting a local Adelaide business.

As a small company, we appreciate every customer who chooses to buy from us. By supporting Koi Knives, you're not only helping us stay afloat, but you're also contributing to the local economy.


Koi Knives was founded by Ramon Elzinga & Shannon Dolman in Adelaide, South Australia (just out of Adelaide near the Adelaide Hills).

Ramon was a knife lover even before we were stuck in the house & kitchen. Ramon lost to Callum Hann in very early rounds of MasterChef and decided he'd concentrate on tools more so than dishes.

The son of a blacksmith, Shannon has always been comfortable stuck in the shed. He's a bit hard to get a hold of as he usually has his sleeves up and head down tinkering with something... usually a knife (not always).

High-Quality Materials and Attention to Detail

We use high-quality materials such as Japanese forged high-carbon steel and local wood for our knives, ensuring that they'll last for years to come.

Just like us, each knife is different, no two handles are exactly the same, ensuring that each one is unique.

Variety of Knives to Choose From

Whether you're looking for a Japanese-style chef knife, a paring knife, or any other type of knife, we have a variety of options to choose from.

We offer knives with different blade styles, handle materials, and sizes to suit a wide range of needs and preferences.


We stand behind our products and offer a manufacturing warranty on our knives. This shows that we're committed to producing high-quality knives that will last.

If you have any issues with your knife, you can trust that we will work with you to make it right.

Gift Wrapping

We offer gift wrapping for free. Just like our knives, each piece of wrapping paper we use is unique and adds an extra touch of difference to your gift.

This service is especially convenient if you're sending the knife directly to the recipient, as it saves you the hassle of wrapping the gift yourself.


If you want to add a personal touch to your gift, we offer engraving services at no extra charge.

You can have a name, date, or special message engraved on the blade or handle of the knife.

This makes the knife even more special and shows that you put thought into the gift.

First Knife Sharpening is Free

We also offer a free first knife sharpening service.

After purchasing your knife, simply bring it back to us and we will sharpen it for you at no charge.

This ensures that your knife stays in top condition and is always ready to use.

And so you're not without your knife, we will lend you a Koi knife while yours is being sharpened. 

Wrapping Up

At Koi Knives, we offer not only high-quality knives but also gift wrapping, engraving, and a free first knife sharpening service.

This makes it even easier to give a knife as a thoughtful and personalized gift.

With our commitment to craftsmanship and attention to detail, a knife from Koi Knives is sure to be a gift that will be appreciated and cherished for years to come.

By choosing a knife from Koi Knives, you're getting a beautifully crafted product that's made with high-quality materials and attention to detail, while also supporting a local Adelaide business.
