Building performance with fine materials.

We hand-select the finest available materials to create the Aura One.


Rare California burl wood

Used in the handle because its it’s isotropic grain provides strength in every direction, minimizing shear and compression under the hand.

A layer of black palm, with its strong grain laid diagonally into the tang, provides a powerful coupling between the handle and the blade.

Gemstone counterweights

Dense gemstones are finely tuned counterweights, providing ideal working balance for the Aura One.

Concentrating knife weight at the end of the handle for increased chopping power & overall maneuverability.

The art of steel

Aura Stainless steel is the result of years of metallurgical research. Crafting perfect steel is an art that requires patience and a commitment to achieving the finest balance between hardness, edge-retention, ductility, consistency and corrosion resistance.

Aura Stainless is crafted using more than 30 steps and provides phenomenal sharpness and edge retention for the professional kitchen while retaining corrosion-resistance for a lifetime of use.

Working hand-in-hand with professional chefs, we created a unique satin finish for Aura Stainless steel, designed to reduce glare from professional overhead kitchen lights and to provide an optically color-neutral surface for chefs to focus clearly on food for precise cuts and presentation.
