About Nenox S-Type
Nenohi applies the skills and techniques of traditional Japanese knife crafting to Western style knives, with great attention to detail in each step of the production process. Nenox knives are made with a confidential blend of high carbon stain resistant steel, which undergoes a sub-zero manufacturing process to ensure a durable edge. Much of the process is done by hand, and all of the knives are hand inspected before they are shipped. From the high carbon stainless blades to the ergonomic design and luxurious handle, these knives are a testament to quality. Nenohi’s Nenox knives are loved and admired by chefs worldwide. This line is highly recommended for those who enjoy knives with a traditional Japanese 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 Kiritsuke
The kiritsuke is used by pros as a multi-purpose chef's knife and gets its name from the resemblance to a Japanese sword.

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
  • Stain-resistant knives are not stainless.
  • Improper care will result in rusting and chipping.
  • Please wipe knives dry after use to prevent rusting.
  • 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.
