MK9 Chef Knife

Introducing a kitchen tool for the new era, the MÄNNKITCHEN MK9

Männ is "my" in a dialect of old Norse. My kitchen = MÄNNKITCHEN. The profile of the MK9 is patterned after Norse longboats, which were designed to slice through the water at maximum speed with minimal resistance. This revolutionary design made distant exploration possible and enabled the Viking Era.

We're in a new era now, hopefully one with less pillaging.

The benefits of cooking at home are numerous and well documented. Meals cooked at home are less expensive than eating out, more nutritious, and use only ingredients that you choose. Nothing promotes community better than sharing a meal together. In addition, meals cooked at home have other benefits:

"I have yet to meet a woman who doesn’t think a man who cooks is sexy.”

Hi Marj! We’re nearing the end of the design phase now. I expect to have the final version complete soon, after which we’re running a crowdfunding campaign to fund the initial production run. If you join our mailing list, you’ll be the first to know when the campaign goes live, so you can save 50% on the knife.
