Nenox Blade & Handle
Nenohi blades offer the durability and sharpness of a traditional Japanese carbon-steel knife, but are rust resistant and easier to maintain. Nenox 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 55/45 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.
Nenox SD Paring Knife
This is a small multipurpose paring/petty knife used to peel, cut, de-seed and tourné vegetables and fruit, as well as do other tasks like de-veining shrimp. It is an essential tool for bartenders who serve fresh fruit garnishes.
High carbon steel knives can still rust if not maintained properly. Use the Tsukiji Masamoto or Sabitohru Rust Remover to clean oxidized blades.

Luxury 4" length short pairing Nenox.
It took courage to spend $260 for small paring knife. but it's absolutely worth it. I checked other site but their logo is most stylish.

The only reason why I'm not giving this a 5 star review is because of the price! I would've gone for the black handle but this one looks way nicer. I'm a bartender at a really fancy hotel bar and I've gotten a lot of compliments about this little thing. It's a great size for cutting limes and other garnishes. I never invested much in knives before but I'm getting really serious about mixology so I figured why not get the best tools. I love Japanese bar tools too- I think you should sell some on this website!
