Mert Tansu of is one of the hottest up and comers in the kitchen cutlery business. As a hobby Mert would often fashion knives for his own use. Trained as a professional chef Mert Tansu often encountered knives that had elements that negatively affected their working ability. Not being satisfied with the knives available Mert would contact the maker and provide constructive suggestions only to be snubbed and dismissed as he was not a professional knife maker himself. What these other makers did not seem to understand is that it is not the maker that uses the knife but the chef that buys it that actually uses it. So Mert decided to give the other guys a run for their money and build a “real” chef’s knife.


It was not long before other chefs took notice and started requesting Mert Tansu knives of their own. Word spread quickly about the Tansu Knife quality and soon Mert was making chef knives full time.


As a woodworker Mert will often create a special wood scabbard matching that of the knife to further embellish the work and craftsmanship exhibited in his pieces.


Always growing, learning and pushing the boundaries we can count on Mert Tansu to continue to develop unique, beautiful and functional pieces to adorn some of the finest kitchens in the world.
