Valentine's Day Gift Guide for Chefs (Updated February 2, 2022)
1. Budget Under $100
If your budget is under $100 and you're looking for a wonderful gift for that special cook in your life, consider one of Senken Knives' Damascus Steel Chef Knives.

Our top pick for 2022 is Senken Knives' 'Hidama' Japanese Damascus Steel Chef Knife. This brand new Japanese Kiritsuke Chef's Knife, whose name means 'Shooting Star', is forged from the same Japanese VG10 Steel that you've come to expect with all of Senken Knives' Damascus Chef Knives. The main attraction of this specific knife is its unique Resin Honeycomb Handle that offers a unique aesthetic as well as a strong, ergonomic grip.
Another wonderful option to show your love this Valentine's season is Senken Knives' 'Raikiri' Damascus Steel Chef's Knife (Ruby). This beautiful Kiritsuke Chef Knife also has a Japanese VG10 steel Damascus blade, as well as a one-of-a-kind solidified wooden handle with octagonal geometry and a unique ruby color scheme; the beauty of each handle is unique and there will never be another one created quite like yours.
Finally, Senken Knives' 'Ryujin' Damascus Steel Chef Knife, their very first Damascus Chef's Knife, is absolutely perfect for Valentine's Day.
