Nenox 240 Kiritsuke - Limited Edition
The kiritsuke is traditionally a single beveled knife used exclusively by skilled chefs but luckily this Nenox custom kiritsuke is a western V-bevel (double bevel) suitable for everyone. It is handmade by the same meticulous methods as all Nenox custom blades and features a handle made from an exceptional piece of marbled buffalo horn.
A highly polished mirror finish reflects light in all directions, simply breathtaking to behold.
Buffalo horn is very difficult to shape but is highly durable. The handle is further enhanced with four layers of spacers and solid stainless bolster and end cap.
Due to the handle material this knife is somewhat more weighty so if you like knives with more heft this is a great option.
The overall grind is a slippery hamaguri with a microbevel that is hand finished on a 12,000 grit stone. The results – a cutting experience that can only be described as silky.
There is only one.
Nenox Custom Knives
Although the Nenox Custom knives share a similar overall appearance to the G-Type series the similarities end there. The G-Type series are production knives produced in factory environment while the bone handle knives are true custom knives that are handmade piece by piece by Sawada san and his small team of craftsmen in Kanagawa.
The blades are slowly ground from high carbon stainless steel in the same time consuming and careful methods employed by custom knifemakers.
Extra care is taken never to overheat the blade.
Exotic materials are difficult to shape as it has to be done at low speeds to prevent cracking from overheating the material. Both the buffalo horn and stainless bolsters are held in place with pins (no welding as this would affect the tempering of the blade) before the handle is slowly hand ground into shape.
Although the price is high, knowing the degree of workmanship that is distilled in each and every Nenox Custom knife it’s not hard to see why the top end knives from Nenox find their way into some of the best kitchens in the world.
