Aura was founded on the principles of uncompromising performance and craft, and the new Chakra pushes many of the limits we pioneered with our original model. Our ongoing commitment to studying the mechanics and ergonomics of knife strokes produced refinements to our 3D handle and ball bolster.  

The result is the new Chakra, lighter and more dexterous than any other knife in our history.

The Handle

The spherical bolster makes cutting intuitive. Carefully command the knife tip by engaging this bolster directly. Choke up to pinch the blade for cutting normally.

Observing experienced Chefs we noticed an increase of grips changes when it comes to fine detail work. We prototyped 88 different knives over the course of 16 months to come up with the new Chakra.

The faceted handle is specifically designed to provide control and comfort in multiple grip orientations, readily adapting to quick controlled power whilst excelling at fine surgical precision.


The Blade

6.7 inches of steel intended to transform your culinary experiences.

The satin finish of Aura Stainless steel was also developed to reduce friction – allowing the knife to gallantly stride through food.

To improve chopping performance, we looked at other fields where rocking motions mattered. We were most inspired by the sport of Wakeboarding, where subtle angle changes are used to propel an object airborne. The Chakra adopts angular acceleration principles to help return the knife with a smooth rebounding effect.
