Nenox Blade & Handle
Nenox 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 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 sujihiki is a Japanese-style slicing knife with a thinner, sharper edge than Western versions. The long blade of the sujihiki is ideal for thinly carving cooked meats and slicing terrines and patés. It can also be used instead of a yanagi to slice raw fish.
High carbon steel knives can still rust if not maintained properly. Use the Tsukiji Masamoto or Sabitohru Rust Remover to clean oxidized blades.

I do raw cooking so precise knife cuts and sharp blades are extremely important. I'm very excited that I finally got this Nenohi and it hasn't disappointed me so far. I see a few rusty spots already but they did warn me that it uses a high carbon material so I probably need to take better care of it! The video of the tomato is great!

i work on a crudo station and slice a lot of raw fish. got my other slicer stolen so had to get a new one. was going to get a cheap one but i got a locker to keep my knives safe! never was a fan of sushi knives because i just can't use the singe edges. this knife seriously leaves a smooth edge on all the pieces of fish i cute! was going to get the black handle but apparently this one has a slightly different steel, the difference isn't just in the handle. what an amazing knife!
