About Korin Nickel Damascus
The Korin Nickel Damascus Line is one of Korin’s new line of Japanese Damascus knives. The elegant blade is constructed out of 33 layered steel with a V-10 steel. This line has gained popularity for its beautiful design, hard steel, stain resistant qualities and long edge retention. The symmetrical 50:50 double edged blade is suitable for both right and left handed individuals. It’s unique Micarta handle design allows the user to fully grip the handle. It's wider blade profile puts more emphasis on the rocking motion. This unique blade profile is also great for users transitioning from European style knives to Japanese style knives. The beautiful Damascus pattern resembles the mottling reminiscent of flowing water.

We are dedicated to bringing the highest quality Japanese knives to your kitchen, so you can experience the unparalleled quality of Japanese craftsmanship in your home or restaurant.
Purpose of SantokuThe santoku, meaning "three virtues", is an all-purpose knife that takes its name from its ability to easily handle meat, fish and vegetables. The high profile of the blade makes the santoku well-suited for smaller kitchen spaces and keeps the knuckles well above the cutting board.
