Knives & Utensils
At The Kitchen Company, we have the largest selection of quality knives in the entire Rogue Valley. With our main knife case measuring at 4′ x 12′ and housing three full rows of knives hanging on magnetic knife bars, one can begin to image all their kitchen knife dreams fulfilled.
Our selection covers the entire range of knives from very inexpensive “picnic” knives to the highly coveted, hand-forged German, American, and Japanese knives from Wusthof, Shun, Lamson, and more.
Our latest great find is a brand called Ferrum made in the Willamette Valley using the finest steel for the blades and reclaimed hardwood for the handles.
Our utensil selection is nothing to be ashamed of either. We have nearly a full 40 feet of hanging space devoted to utensils of every kind not to mention two full tables full of spoons, spatulas, and handy specialty tools.
Our selection is based on reliability and customer satisfaction. We attend trade shows regularly to help stay on top of what is new and trending. The selection in our store reflects a mix of what we have found to be ‘old favorites’ as well as items with newer technological advances.

Way back in 1731 Peter Henckels had the idea to register the ZWILLING trademark with the Cutler’s Guild of Solingen, Germany. A brilliant idea because that makes ZWILLING one of the oldest brands in the world today.

Messermeister is a woman-owned, 4th generation German cutlery and kitchen accessory brand located in the heart of the Ojai Valley in California.

They are one piece, die-cut from a single billet of fine German 1.4116 stainless steel alloy and heat treated and cooled to achieve a Rockwell of 57-58. The three-step, 15° edge is hand stropped on a cloth wheel, creating the sharpest possible cutting surface on an edged tool. Park Plaza is assembled with over-sized industrial quality handles that are hand buffed to a seamless fit and finish
