Known for its innovative knifeware range, Kai has been in the cutlery business for more than a century. Founded in Japan in 1908 as Endo Manufacturing, the company opened its American outpost—Kai USA—in 1977, during its huge expansion into the European, Asian, and North American markets. Today, the ever-growing Kai empire comprises four esteemed brands—Kershaw, Shun, ZT, and Tan Ren—each of which has garnered awards for its military-grade tools and chef-quality knives. Tan Ren is especially notable, featuring blades forged from Daido 1K6 Japanese steel and resin-enforced hardwood handles.
