About Us


Aura Knifeworks is a California-based company dedicated to producing exceptional culinary instruments.

We create professional chef's knives of singular beauty and performance by combining ancient knifemaking techniques with the best of modern design, manufacturing and materials science.

Aura products take years to develop through rigorous testing and field observation in the kitchen, and with every knife we make we seek to push the envelope of knifemaking in design and performance. Each of our products is hand-made in California by our master knifesmiths.

We have been honored with overwhelming demand for our knives and we have grown our production slowly because we remain committed to uncompromising quality with the craftsmanship and the fine materials we use.

We are deeply grateful to our loyal customers and collectors worldwide for their brilliant and ongoing support for our craft.
