About The Epicurean Edge
|Hiroshi (Jack) Igarashi, Executive Vice President of Kai USA with BladeGallery founder, Daniel O'Malley|
The Epicurean Edge is a division of BladeGallery Inc, founded in 1997 specializing in handmade, one-of-a-kind knives from around the world. BladeGallery Inc. was started by Daniel O'Malley, a bladesmith himself. Over the past few years, BladeGallery Inc has expanded its focus to include unique, high-end cutlery with an emphasis on Japanese work. The response has been tremendous and in many cases, this is the first time that American consumers have encountered knives that are at a level far beyond those commonly found in the United States. With such tools, preparing a meal becomes the goal in and of itself. We hope to help you find the knife that makes the meal.™
The Epicurean Edge has an art gallery atmosphere that offers a unique combination of custom handmade knives and fine cutlery. Many of our chef's knives feature blades forged using pattern-welded damascus and show exceptional artistry. We strive to have the lowest prices and the best service found anywhere.
For those looking for museum quality one-of-a-kind knives, we have created www.BladeGallery.com.
For those looking for daily use, practical and tactical knives, we have created www.BladeConnnection.com. BladeConnection includes both handmade and the best factory production knives. We strive to have the lowest prices and the best service found anywhere.
The Epicurean Edge offers an exceptionally high-quality sharpening service featuring a waterstone finish and regularly scheduled sharpening classes. Knives may be dropped off at our retail location or may be sent by post (please package to protect the points!). You can find more information about our sharpening service by clicking here.
