About Nenohi Special Hongasmui 上本霞  白二鋼
Nenohi’s special line of shiro-ko hongasumi knives are forged in Japan from white carbon steel #2 steel with an octagonal magnolia wood handle and natural water buffalo horn bolster. These beautiful Nenohi knives are crafted by highly skilled craftsmen with greater attention to detail than standard hongasumi style knives.
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 Deba
The deba is often used in the Japanese fish markets and restaurants that work with whole fish, because it is designed to behead and fillet fish without damaging the fish. Although many use the deba on other meats, the deba is not intended for chopping of large diameter bones nor should it be used by slamming down the knife like a cleaver. For the best results, please put pressure on the spine of the knife to put clean and precise cuts. Originated in Kansai (Osaka) region of Japan.


Left-handed knives are available for this style. Please call customer service at 1-800-626-2172 to order.

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.
