About Nenohi Special Dentoukougeishi Hongasumi
Nenohi's special line of shiro-ko hongasumi knives are forged by dentoukougeishi craftsmen in Japan. Dentoukougeishi are highly skilled master artisans recognized by the Japanese government for their commitment to protect traditional art and techniques. These knives are made with a wider kireha (cutting blade) and extreme attention to detail for a finer cutting edge. Once the blades are made, each piece is adorned with an elegant octagonal magnolia handle.
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 Yanagi
The yanagi is used to slice boneless fish fillets into sashimi and toppings for sushi. The graceful, long and thin blade is designed to cut slices in one drawing stroke, which applies minimal pressure on the flesh of the fish to avoid stress and cell destruction. Different cutting techniques are used with the yanagi to enhance the aesthetics and the flavors of the fish. There are several variations of fish slicers that are all used in different situations and regions, however the yanagi style is the most widely used. Originated in Kansai (Osaka) region.
