In the Japanese language "Chikara" means power and energy. The Japanese stainless-steel fully forged blades and traditional Japanese handles express the true meaning of Chikara in the kitchen.

The Ginsu brand encompasses three distinct series of knives - something to fit every chef and kitchen! Look at the photos to the left. You have chosen a Chikara Series set, which is great for a chef who enjoys superior performance and doesn't mind the additional maintenance of sharpening blades. The Koden Series is great for a chef who wants high quality and style without the required maintenance of sharpening. The Essential Series is great for the more value-conscious chef, and still features Ginsu's famous dual-serrated blades and Always Sharp promise.
Known for decades as a maker of very sharp knives, Ginsu got its start as one of the first items to gain popularity by selling via infomercial in the 1970s. "But wait, there's more!" The Ginsu brand has evolved to create incredibly sharp, technologically superior cutlery with the highest quality standards. Ginsu draws from the ancient Japanese methods of Samurai sword smiths to produce the same level of precision and craftsmanship in our contemporary knives. The Always Sharp blades and beautifully shaped, ergonomic handles have gained respect from generations of consumers, making Ginsu one of the most well-known names in cutlery.
