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.
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.
