The Semiblack story began in 2020, amidst the uncertainty of a brutal global pandemic. Our founder, Harvest, was a chef who found himself put on an indefinite no-pay leave. This all happened while he was recovering from a failed ramen-ya venture of his own.
These unexpected turn of events led to a pivotal point in his life - founding Semiblack. What started as a struggle to earn a living, has now grown into a community from all walks of life. We’ve met endearing home cooks, coffee enthusiasts, and cafe owners who have supported and grown with us.
Currently centered around Japanese kitchen knives, sharpening accessories and coffee equipment, the brand is dedicated to bringing the professional kitchen into your homes.
