Our Japanese Chefs' Knives hold one of the highest reputations in the world.

The precision blades of the Nenohi Japanese chefs' knives are crafted using traditional techniques which have been perfected and handed down for ages. While many Japanese chefs' knives these days are simply mass produced, we remain committed to the true traditional art of knife crafting, through the arduous steps in low heat processing, to the meticulous sharpening of each individual blade. Nenohi offers the best in Japanese chefs’ knives - the best in quality, durability, and performance. And with each blade, we genuinely strive to deliver a personalized and a long lasting customer satisfaction.




Japanese Style Knives

Hizumi-tori

Hizumi-Tori is a process that ensures a precise, straight aligned construction of the blade and the handle. This is a basic process that goes into making a knife to assure ease in handling.

Ago-migaki

Upon completing each blade, it's immediately assembled with the handle. This too is a step that's very basic in knife making that assures a quality performance from every piece. The spot that the fingers meet the metal is called "Ago". Extra care is taken in polishing this spot in order to deliver the most comfort when handing the knife. All areas that a chef finds uncomfortable are isolated, then aggressively investigated for solutions.

E-ume

In fusing the blade to the handle, the gap is filled using the same material as the handle. Furthermore, a waterproof wax material is added to prevent any chance of moisture entering through even a minuscule of spaces. E-Ume deters problems arising from the metals rusting inside the handle core due to moisture.

Ha-mon (tempered line)

Neohi hand forged knives display a beautiful tempered line on the blade. It comes from another improvement measure where a soft metal is used in conjunction with the hard. And where the two types meet, a luminescent line forms, each with its "signature" wavy pattern all of its own. The Ha-Mon resembles a genuine Japanese sword.

Manufacturing Process

The craftsmen behind the Nenohi knives are the top in their field, master artisans who relentlessly dedicate their lives to their craft. For example, in order to inhibit damage to the metal, each raw material bar is heated at a low temperature and for an extended period. Though there's no noticeable difference in the product's appearance for taking the extra and uncompromising measures, once it's put into use, the quality difference is significantly apparent in the blade's flexibility and in superb cutting ability.
