About Nenohi Ao-Ko Highest Kasumi 
The Nenohi Ao-ko Highest Kasumi knives are forged in Japan out of blue carbon steel #2 with an octagonal magnolia wood handle and natural water buffalo born bolster.

About Nenohi
Nenox Cutlery, known for its Nenohi Original (also known as Nenox) knives, was established in 1975 and has continued to provide the finest quality cutlery at their store in the world renowned Tsukiji Market since 1999. Nenohi takes great pride in crafting high quality knives that are masterfully hammered and forged by skilled knife smiths, using techniques derived from traditional Japanese sword-forging techniques. After they are forged, each blade is grinded and hand sharpened into a blade worthy of Nenohi's name.
Purpose of Kiritsuke
Used only by the most skilled master chefs in Japan, the single-edged kiritsuke requires an accomplished technique and talent to use effectively, making ownership of this knife a symbol of status and prestige for top Japanese chefs. The carbon steel Nenohi is said to cut with "the fluidity of a river current."

CAUTION: Moisture Causes Rusting and Discoloration



General knife care tips and warnings


  • Never wash knives in the dishwasher
  • This is not stain resistant. It will rust and discolor after cutting acidic ingredients or if one leaves it wet.
  • Improper care will result in chipping.
  • Please wipe knives dry after use to prevent rusting. Korin recommends wiping carbon knives with tsubaki oil to keep moisture off the knife.
  • Western style knives sold at KORIN have significantly thinner blades than typical Western knives. Use of honing steels or sharpening machines may result in chipping.
  • We advice all customers to always use sharpening stones to sharpen or hone knives.


Caution

Please be cautious when inspecting carbon knives with wet hands after purchase. We ask customers to inspect all knives prior to using, and will not accept returns on damaged goods. In the event you receive a rusted knife, please call customer service within 48 hours, and we will be happy to assist you.
