Nenox 240 Gyuto
At close to 300g this is a hefty gyuto. Most of the weight is in the handle leaving the blade thin enough to be a very deft knife to use. For those who like heavier knives.
Nenox G-Type Series
The Nenox G-type knives sport a thin double hamaguri bevel (convex edge grind) with a 45:55 microbevel for extra strength. The high carbon stainless steel blades are easy to look after and can be sharpened to an exceptional edge on Japanese waterstones. The handles, which are made from Japanese paper micarta have double stainless bolsters to give the knife a solid feel.
Although the G-Type are their entry level series they still have the exceptional fit and finish that Nenox knives are famous for.
The Nenox brand was born in 1993 due the demand for stainless steel western style blades in Japan. At that time Tokyo chefs were using European made stainless blades but complained about a lack of sharpness compared to carbon steel.
After years of designing, repeated testing of shape, steel type and sharpening Nenohi brought their first western style knives to market under the brand Nenox.
Nenox is committed to the philosophy of continual improvement, innovation, attention to detail and securing top quality materials. Their knives have incremently changed over the years and have an enviable reputation among the elite chefs of Tokyo and beyond.
Chef's Armoury are proud to be the official agent for Nenox kitchen knives in Australia.
