Nenox Kiritsuke Gyuto 240mm Blue Stabilized Wood Handle
Nenox is a high-end Western handle line from the venerable Nenohi company based in Tokyo. The Nenox line is designed to be durable, elegant and extremely comfortable in one's hands, and meant to withstand much of the work even in the most demanding professional settings.
The steel used in this series takes a bit of time to sharpen, but once done, it holds an edge for a long time, and very chip resistant. These beautifully dyed, ergonomically shaped handles offer some of the best in-hand feelings among our offerings (they wow so many clients handling them at the store), and along with near friction-fit wooden sheaths, Nenox line is a whole package.
A kiritsuke-gyuto is a chef's knife with a slanted tip from a traditional single-sided blade called a kiritsuke. It is essentially a chef's knife with a twist. It serves the same function as an all-purpose knife, and although some swear that the accentuated tip makes it easier to execute fine cuts, we find that the k-tip mostly offers an aesthetic power boost (rough guess 50%).
