Made in Canada from eco-friendly recycled material by Morgan from Kaizen.

In Japanese, "Kaizen" means "the process of continuous amelioration, through small increments". Morgan rapidly realized that this concept was at the heart of his work. Failures guide him towards analysis, improvement, and the right implementation to move closer to excellence with every knife he makes, to create exceptional products, 100% handmade. No shortcut. 

Values of Kaizen Knives:

Performance - Each of us has experienced using a dull knife (and it sucks!), but not many of us know how a well crafted sharp knife should cut. It transforms your cooking experience. There is no going back.

Aesthetic - Wanting to create a WOW effect with the lines, design, colours of his knives. They believe the world could benefit from more moments of wonder. Remember what a kid looks like in front of a toy shop. How about allowing that for our adult-selves.

Eco-friendly - Believing our planet demands our attention, more than ever. That is why most of their raw materials come from recycling and repurpose. Giant milling saw blades, wrought iron from and old water mill, home stabilized burl wood from lands in Quebec or New Brunswick, are just a few examples of where their stuff come from.
