About Kaede 子の日 楓霞
The Kaede line combines Nenohi's original technology with their very best materials. Two different types of high quality rust-resistant steel are compressed together at extremely high pressure. This results in a high quality stain-resistant blade with the kirenaga and sharpness of a honyaki knife, and the durability and ease of sharpening of a kasumi knife. They are mirror finished with presharpened edges to create the most exact and long lasting sharpness possible. All knives include saya covers.
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.
