You'll Never Guess How These Shockingly Affordable Kitchen Knives Are Made

Jason | Dec 03, 2022

No chef worth their salt would ever be caught with a dull, cheap knife — they’re not just less effective, they’re dangerous!

So… why should you settle for dull, poorly made knives in your kitchen?

That’s the question a new startup is asking — and they’re on a mission to put safer, better-quality knives in every kitchen.

Right now, home kitchens everywhere are filled with dull blades, rusty edges and crumbling handles. You may not realize it, but your old knife is causing even the simplest recipes to take much longer — and require much more physical effort.

As a result, poorly made knives can cause injuries like sprains and strains because of how difficult it is to hack through food…

And dull knives are actually far more dangerous than properly sharpened knives, because dull knives require more pressure to make a cut — which increases the chances of slipping and cutting yourself.

Of course, most people don’t think twice about the knives they buy. They usually purchase the first set they see, not stopping to consider how important it is to have a reliable knife.

The folks behind the Dynasty Series, a new knifemaking startup, think that’s a shame… and they want to change it.

Their solution? Employ real blacksmiths with 20 years of experience… have them hand-forge every knife using an ancient Japanese technique and premium high carbon steel… and then sell them directly to you, skipping the middleman and passing on the savings.

Their formula has been working so far, with more than 80,000 knives sold already. If you’ve always wanted Gordon Ramsay’s kitchen knives without paying the price, you’re going to love discovering these knives!

What are The Dynasty Series knives, and why are so many chefs recommending them?

The Dynasty Series is a new set of knives from The Cooking Guild, a knifemaking startup that is dedicated to helping everyone enjoy the safety, convenience and pride that comes with owning premium-quality kitchen knives.

The beautiful stainless steel knives are created with an 1,100-year-old Samurai technique called San Mai, which helps them stay sharper longer.

That said, these knives are more than cutting tools — they’re designed to help you save time, make better meals, and regain your love of working in the kitchen.

The full series is comprised of four hand-forged knives:

🗡️ Petty Knife

🔪 Santoku

🗡️ Serbian Cleaver

🔪 Chef Knife

Each knife is hand-crafted with high carbon Japanese stainless steel according to the San Mai technique.

This technique makes Dynasty knives resistant to corrosion and perfectly balanced in your hand, along with helping the blades stay sharper for longer. In fact, the creators are so confident in their knives, they offer a lifetime warranty on every Dynasty knife.

Altogether, this makes your life in the kitchen much easier, and can even trim up to 50% off your meal prep time.

So if you’re using old dull knives, you can expect an immediate boost in performance. Average cooks will feel more confident from the moment they pick one up… yet even professional chefs are celebrating how effective these knives are:

"Razor sharp."

"Great weight and balance to it as well. Beautiful sheath to keep it in. I cannot recommend this knife enough. Just took a hard cured Sausage from the fridge and it went through it like it was made of butter."

The Dynasty Series: Four Knives That Complete Any Kitchen

Each knife in the Dynasty Series is made with a rust-resistant hammered finish and a carbonized rosewood handle, which not only fits easily into your hand and reduces stress on the palm and fingers, it also looks impressive in any kitchen. Let’s take a look!

The Chef Knife is the most versatile and is designed for use in almost any situation.

The Dynasty Series procedure reimagined the classic chef knife, forging it using the San Mai technique to create a powerfully sharp, rust-resistant, full-tang blade that's perfect for slicing, chopping and disjoining.

The Serbian Cleaver is perfect for large cuts of meat, hacking through thick layers of fat and gristle like they were butter.

The Dynasty Cleaver's reinforced blade is razor sharp and perfectly balanced, making it the right knife for even the toughest of cuts.

The Santoku Knife is smaller than the classic chef's knife, making it more versatile and precise. It’s great for mincing, dicing and slicing, and chefs say it’s a game-changer for preparing vegetables.

The Petty Knife is the perfect compliment for the Dynasty Series. As the go-to knife for peeling, slicing and shaping, it's durable and razor-sharp, yet easy to use.

The Secret of San Mai: An Ancient Technique That Remains Superior To Modern Methods

Ancient samurai began using a particular sword-making technique around the year 900 AD that terrified their enemies because it made their swords stronger AND sharper. This was revolutionary — and no one, not even the greatest sword makers in Asia or Europe, could copy this technique.

The Dynasty Series knives are created using this same method, cladding the blade's hard steel core with two layers of "softer" steel. Now known as the San Mai technique, it offers extra support and protects against corrosion while still maintaining the ease of sharpening a high carbon knife allows.

A Dream Gift For A Prospective Chef

The Dynasty Series has arrived at the perfect time — they’ve quickly rocketed to the top of “Top Gift” lists, and for good reason. Take this story from someone who knew his sister needed a sharper option for her culinary creations:

My sister kicks butt in her kitchen, but she’s so timid! She creates amazing dishes, from stir fries to lamb chops and filet mignon, you name it, she’s the best.

Last year our parents got her some new pots and pans and her cooking reached another level. Then, for her birthday last month I got her all four knives in the Dynasty Series… and her eyes lit up!

She was so happy she cried, and immediately took them into the kitchen and went to work creating dinner. We ate so well that night, you have no idea! The best part is… with all the confidence she’s developed from using these amazing knives, she decided to go to cooking school!

Dynasty Knives Are The Best Knives You’ll Find At This Price — By Far

Perhaps the biggest buzz surrounding Dynasty involves the surprisingly low prices. Normally, a professional knife set like this could go for upwards of $1,000 or more — but the Dynasty Series is sold directly to home cooks, which means it’s available at a fraction of the price.

Clearly, there are plenty of reasons why the Dynasty Series has become so popular so quickly. If you cook at least once a week and you don’t already have a set of professional knives, you absolutely have to get yourself a set of Dynasty knives.

You’ll never believe how much of a difference a new set of knives will make. They’re absolutely worth every penny… especially when you consider the fact that they last a lifetime.

Have a Question? See Our FAQs

Why are Dynasty Series knives better than typical kitchen knives?

The quality of materials and craftsmanship, combined with our belief that everyone should have a knife they can be proud of, mean we create knives that simply can’t be beat!

We source premium high carbon Japanese steel and combine it with the expertise of our blacksmiths, who have more than 20 years of experience hand crafting blades. Finally, we offer them directly to you, skipping the middleman. The result is a series of knives that are affordable, yet have the same quality you’ll find in a professional chef’s kitchen.

How are the knives made?

Each Dynasty knife is crafted according to the ancient San Mai technique, which is the same method used to craft Samurai swords, by professional blacksmiths with more than 20 years of experience. The high carbon Japanese stainless steel blade is clad in two sheets of softer steel, which helps to prevent corrosion and keep the blade sharper for longer.

Why are sharper blades safer?

It may sound counterintuitive, but dull knives are actually more dangerous than ultra-sharp blades like the Dynasty Series… in fact, the sharper the better! That’s because a dull blade requires more pressure and strength to make a cut, which means there’s a bigger chance the knife will slip and you’ll cut yourself. A sharp knife makes easier, more accurate cuts, and is less likely to slip.

Which knife should I choose?

We highly recommend getting the full set! Each knife is designed for different purposes, and having the full set means you’ll always be prepared.

That said, you may only need a few of the knives. Here’s a brief description of each:

Chef Knife: The chef knife is the most versatile and is designed for use in almost any situation. Perfect for slicing, chopping and disjoining.

Serbian Cleaver: A must-have for large cuts of meat, as it hacks through thick layers of fat and gristle easily. It melts through even the toughest cuts!

Santoku Blade: Smaller than the classic chef's knife, making it more versatile for smaller tasks and necessary when you need a precise cut. Great for preparing vegetables.Petty Knife: A great go-to knife for peeling, slicing and shaping, especially slicing fruits, cheeses and vegetables.
