Hiroshi (Jack) Igarashi, Executive Vice President of Kai USA on his visit with BladeGallery Inc staff
The Epicurean Edge is a division of BladeGallery, Inc, founded in 1998 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.
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!).
We are currently moving our showroom from Kirkland, WA back to Seattle, WA. We're excited that our new larger showroom will have the space to display a wider range of knives, provide even better service, and offer more in-person classes. We anticiapte our Seattle location to open mid-October 2021. Thank you for your patience while we move our flagship showroom. We are shipping online orders during our move. You may also send sharpening to our location, though we are not yet open to the public. Our showroom is at:
