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.

The faceted handle is designed to provide control and comfort to several different grip orientations.

The Chakra readily adapts to quick controlled power while 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 where rocking mattered in other fields. We were most inspired by the sport of Wakeboarding, where subtle angle changes are used to propel riders airborne. The Chakra uses these angular acceleration principles to help return the knife with a smooth rebounding effect.
