If you’re gonna slay a dragon, you might as well do it in style. May we suggest these crazily cool-looking cutting knives that only need to be sharpened every 25 years?

You read that right: These knives will keep their edge for an astonishing 25 years – a quarter of your entire life, if you’re lucky, and five times as long as your passing interest in cooking that you took up to impress that one girl in college who was really into kale and organic, grass-fed wagyu beef.

These one-of-a-kind knives are made from titanium carbide – probably the same thing rad street racing cars that shoot flames out of their mufflers are made from (also they are painted with flames and have amateurish paintings of naked ladies, who are also on fire, on the hood). In Japanese, this material is called “tanka chitin.”


CHITIN! These are made out of that ubiquitous RPG material you make the best armor in the game with! But the manufacturers have apparently done the dirty work of farming mud crabs for you to deliver these shiny, all-black, super radical-looking knives that look like they came straight out of a 1985 infomercial starring a stoic Japanese sushi chef.


You might assume these knives are of Japanese origin – what with their ninja-inspired designs – but they’re actually a product of French manufacturer Furtif.

They’re called “Evercut” knives, further cementing their connection in your mind to online RPGs, and they can be yours for the low, low price of just about 8,000 yen (approx. US$75).


Here’s a promotional video that sadly doesn’t involve any cybernetic ninja future assassins wielding the knives:
