About Korin Special Inox
The Korin Special Inox is an original design created by Korin's resident knife master, Chiharu Sugai and Knife System's founder, Junro Aoki. The special grade stain resistant AUS-10 steel has a higher carbon content, giving it the cut and feel similar to a carbon knife without the maintenance. Korin recommends this line for those with experience using a sharpening stone. The black handle is made of an easy-to-clean and bacteria resistant POM molded handle and topped with a stainless steel cap. With superior balance and a slightly weighted feel, these knives are comfortable in the hand and a pleasure to use.
Drawing from a tradition of Japanese craftsmanship and meticulous attention to detail, the collections at Korin showcase exceptional sharpness and time-tested durability. 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.
