OverviewFeaturesOur Promises

Without a tall finger guard at the heel, your old paring knife knife was dangerous. That's why we reimagined what a paring knife could be. Precision work demands you be further up on the blade, so we made a 1.1" tall heel that lets you move further up the blade for control and comfort, while eliminating the risk of cutting yourself. 

Scalpel-like precision and sharpness

Completely reimagined for the human hand

Like-a-glove fit for superior maneuverability

Elmax® 3rd Gen Powder Steel: sharper for longer

FSC Certified Richlite® handles from 65% recycled wood pulp

Safety-first design with a 1.1" tall finger guard

Custom-quality leather sheaths for convenient storage

Each tool we craft comes with our 10,000 Cuts Guarantee. Simply, use your knife like you normally would for 10,000 cuts, or up to 100 days, and if it’s not the best performing and most comfortable tool you’ve ever owned, send it back for a 100% refund. 

Our proprietary grinding and sharpening processes get your knife cutting like an ultra-thin and "fast" Japanese custom, while approaching German boat anchor toughness and chip resistance. Thinner. Tougher. Sharper for longer. That's Artisan Revere Sharp™.

Become one with your knife. Fully softened handles, spines, and choils on all knives so that you become one with your knife. That's Revere's Comfort Promise. Designed to be the most comfortable knife, ever.

PRECISE DISTAL TAPER

Knives are precision ground thinner towards the tip to ensure surgical tip work while maintaining a strong point.

PRECISION GROUND TIP

"Coring a tomato feels like using a scalpel, the tip extracting the stem end with precision." -Men's Health

EXTREME PRECISION CUTS

Our expertly ground 15° edge bevel is just 3 human hairs thick. That's why, "peeling an apple is surgical, the skin lifting from the surface flesh of the fruit." -Men's Health

KNOW YOUR STEEL

Elmax® powder steel costs 30x more than typical German knife steel. Without it, we couldn't grind as thin and create the kind of precision we do.

ROUNDED AND SOFTENED CHOIL

Your knife shouldn't hurt you or cause discomfort. That's why we softened the choils — to maximize your comfort.

ROUNDED AND SOFTENED SPINE

Kitchens get hot and uncomfortable. Your knife shouldn't. We can't stand rough edges and think you shouldn't have to either.

"LIKE A GLOVE" FIT

Your hand shouldn't feel cramped on your knife. That's why we made a longer neck and 100% softened points of contact. Your hand can breathe and you get drastically better maneuverability.

HANDLES MADE FOR COMFORT

Our handles were designed to be smooth, non-slip, and, oh-so buttery soft. That "extension of my hand" feeling you've been looking for is finally here.

SAFETY-FIRST "NO-CUT" HEEL

Designed to guarantee you'll never cut yourself on the heel again. 1.1" tall with a forward recurve choil. Go ahead, choke up and prep with confidence.

Elmax® Powder Steel

Carbon: Along with iron, carbon is the base element in all steel. It increases edge retention, raises tensile strength, increases hardness and improves resistance to wear and abrasion.

The backbone of all steel.

Vanadium: Increases wear resistance and edge retention. At ~2800 Vickers, vanadium carbide, is among the hardest carbides seen in steel. Elmax has 30x more V than the most popular German steel.

Sharper for longer—up to 2.3x longer.

Chromium: Leads to the formation of a chromium oxide layer on the blade surface which protects the steel from rusting.

Keeps corrosion at bay.

Molybdenum: Helps with pitting resistance and supports the chromium oxide layer. It adds protection from water, acid, and salt.

Helps Cr fight corrosion.

52100 Carbon
Varied Origins

3rd generation powder steel. Small & homogenous carbides make for a tough (hard to chip) steel, despite high alloy content. Knives can be ground thin as a result. 3.0% vanadium (~2800 Vickers) lends itself to very high wear resistance. Together, these allow for a thin and tough knife that stays sharper longer. 60+ Rockwell for best results.
Ingot steel. Mid-sized & heterogeneous carbides, combined with thin grinds, create potential for severe edge damage. Knives should be ground a bit thicker with less acute edge geometry to avoid edge failure. Given high carbon content, these knives can cut well for long periods, if used gently. 59-62 Rockwell for best results.
Ingot steel. Large & heterogenous carbides create potential for severe edge chipping, despite low alloy content. Knives should be ground thick, with wide edge angles. Therefore, these knives are typically heavy, cut poorly, and dull quickly. 52-57 Rockwell for best results.
Ingot steel. Small and homogeneous carbides, with low alloy content makes for a tough, but very low edge-retention steel. Knives should be ground thin with acute geometry given how quickly the edge will dull. 60+ Rockwell for best results.
Ingot steel. Small and homogenous carbides, with ~1% carbon content, makes for a tough, medium edge retention steel. Knives should be ground thin, with acute geometry. 52100 has almost no corrosion resistance, and must be wiped down constantly during prep sessions. Apply mineral oil after cleaning/drying. 60+ Rockwell for best results.

The Paring Knife Reimagined

Paring knives are made for precision work, which demands the cook be as far up the blade as possible. That’s why our paring knife is 1.11” tall (vs. most at 0.7-0.9”), with a finger hook (choil) that lets you move further forward for control, functionality and comfort, while also eliminating the risk of cutting yourself. Design reimagined.

Stays Sharper Longer

Ample room to choke up and wrap your hand around the handle, thanks to an elongated neck. Your middle finger’s distal and intermediate phalanges hook safely around the blade choil and the handle’s front beveling, encouraging an in-hand choke-up grip. Finally, a grip that feels natural.

Edge Geometry

  • 50/50 edge bevel to ensure straight steering
  • 15 degree per side cutting edge for superb cutting ability
  • Micro-compound edge bevel for a fast and tough edge
  • Slightly convex primary grind for better food release
  • 0.0125" "behind-the-edge" thickness balances speed and strength
  • 60-62 Rockwell Hardness from Peters' Heat Treat
