A knife set on Kickstarter has raised more money than most people will see in their lifetime.
The team behind Kuroi Hana Japanese knives, Edge of Belgravia, needed at least $30,000 to bring their knives to market when they launched their campaign in late May. To date, they’ve raised $1.8 million.
Kuroi Hana launches on Kickstarter tomorrow. Sleek, angular and supremely sharp. From cooking for the family to hosting dinner with your friends, Kuroi Hana will have you looking and feeling like a Michelin star chef. The set was designed in London by Christian bird. The floral pattern on the blade is hand etched by artisan workers.

Described in their video as “Japanese steel combined with futuristic London design,” Kuroi Hana knives consist of a whopping 67 layers of supreme quality steel, which has its origin in both Japanese samurai and Damascene sword making.
At full retail price, Kuroi Hana, a set of six knives will set you back $1,100. Backers received the set for just $299. Needless to say, the knives are all gone. A lot of folks are going to be getting really cool Christmas presents this year.
