|* To be precise, the bevel is 55:45, according to President Sawada of Nenohi Cutlery. But the difference is practically unnoticeable so this knife is suitable for left-handed people. |
Nenohi blades offer the durability and sharpness of a traditional Japanese carbon-steel knife, but are rust resistant and easier to maintain. These knives have a hamaguriba (clam shaped blade) from the edge all the way to the spine. Since it has no flat surface, there is minimal friction against the food you're cutting, resulting in less cell damage and a smoother cut. To achieve this shape, they sharpen and polish the edge, mid-section and spine of the blade separately, by hand. After much trial and error, they found that an HRC of 61 is the optimum hardness for Nenohi knives to possess the right balance of superior cutting edge, ductility and edge retention.
This knife is made honyaki style, with one piece of high carbon steel, and with a 50/50 edge, it can easily be sharpened to suit your preference, whether you are right or left handed.
The SD series is top of the Nenohi line, and has an even more ductile blade than the G-type series, meaning that it is even more durable. The composite DuPont™ Corian® handle offers a comfortable grip, and is heat-resistant, nontoxic and resists the growth of bacteria.
The Yo-Deba literally means “Western deba” and has a double-bevel edge, making it ideal for cutting through lobster and crab shells. Warning: High carbon steel knives can still rust if not maintained properly. Use the Tsukiji Masamoto or Sabitohru Rust Remover to clean oxidized blades.
