The must-have kitchen tools.



Vertoku is rated Excellent on Trustpilot

During COVID-19 my husband has become somewhat of a foodie. He is loving his new knives and the ease in using them. He has commented on the weight, the handle, and the sharpness of the edge and continue to be shape no matter how much he uses them.
Thank you for a great product.

- Lora Dawson

Using these knives will make a believer out of you!

I am very pleased with the construction and quality of the knives, so much so I have been purchasing them as gifts and giving them to other members of my family!

- Douglas Williams

TRULY love my new knives and magnetic bamboo holder to display them, they are gorgeous and extremely sharp right out of the box. They can also easily be re-sharpened and hold a good edge, I call these my "set of razors ingeniously disguised as beautiful knives."

Japanese Inspired. Chef Approved.

Forged from the creative minds of chef’s just like you, Vertoku was born out of a love for the kitchen and a true passion for creating dishes that are as breathtaking as they are delectable.

Accessible and Affordable Knifes for Every Chef

From aspiring professional chefs to weekend kitchen warriors, no kitchen is complete without a proper set of knives and knife sets. Yet, high quality kitchen knives are often prohibitively expensive, leaving many chefs broke or ill-equipped. A single Japanese chef’s knife, for example, can run upwards of $600 from some brands. And a full set? Forget about it. Those can run upwards of $3000. At Vertoku we knew we wanted to make a difference. We saw a need for making Japanese inspired knives affordable and accessible, without sacrificing quality, precision and purpose. Starting with sourcing the highest-grade materials from vendors willing to offer a fair price, to optimized manufacturing practices that ensure we lower costs without cutting corners, we bring it all together to offer reasonably priced knives that perform as good as they look. Local store shelves have limited selections of factory-pressed kitchen knife sets that are unsightly, boring, and poorly engineered from inferior raw materials. With Vertoku there has never been a better time to upgrade, right from the comfort of your own home. Our site was designed to help you visualize our inventory of Japanese inspired knives, putting you in the driver’s seat and ensuring you get just what you need to create dishes that will impress.

Creative, Breath-Taking Designs that Will Get People Talking

You’re not boring. So why should your kitchen knife be? From chef’s knives to Santoku and slicing knives, our products are created with a flair for beauty and made to stand out for all of the right reasons. From tip to hilt and everything in-between, each of our knives is inspired by traditional Japanese design, with a modern flair that elevates your experience when cooking. One of a kind wood core resin-filled handles utilize a proprietary coloring process, resulting in truly unique handles that are as vibrant and attractive as they are ergonomic. Each blade is similarly breathtaking, offering immaculate blade patterns that inspire awe from those passing by.

Innovative and Ergonomic Concepts Brought to Life

Inspired by traditional Japanese designs, we meld classic precision and design, with a modern take on ergonomics and precision. Each knife is engineered to perfection, having gone through extensive testing before making it to our digital store shelves. Conceptualized with utility, safety and precision in mind, each knife, from handle to tip is painstakingly crafted to elevate the cooking experience and exceed expectations.

Unparalleled Quality and Function

At Vertoku, looking the part isn’t enough. We know our blades need to perform as undeniably as they are aesthetic. Following in the path of those who have perfected the kitchen knife (the Japanese), we took what world-class chef’s around the world loved and made it even better.

Our Steel

Our Damascus knives are crafted from authentic Japanese VG10 steel, and layered with 33 layers of genuine Damascus steel on both sides of the blade. Forged and folded with care, this layering process results in a superiorly made blade, offering incredible durability, razor-sharp edge retention and a one-of-a-kind pattern.
