About our knife brands
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. Nenox’s master craftsmen heat all the knives at a low temperature for an extended period of time in order to prevent any damage to the blades. Nenox is well known for its beautifully designed and well balanced knives, but customers will also experience the comfortable grip and the long lasting sharpness and ductility of the blades.
They pay attention to the smallest details in the production process to ensure superior quality. For example, Hizumi-Tori is a process that ensures a precise, straight aligned construction of the blade and handle. One special feature that differentiates Nenox knives is the high carbon rust resistant steel that they use. With practically the same percentage of carbon as carbon steel knives, Nenox knives offer the durability and sharpness of traditional Japanese knives but do not oxidize as easily.
