Kizuna, a bond with the knife craftsmen!

by Wendy on December 20, 2016

Masamoto Korin Shiro #1 Hongasumi Mirror Finish Kizuna knives are back in stock! These knives are expertly forged and crafted by the very best blacksmiths and edge crafters in Japan and are 100% hand made. The red kanji stamp on the blade of the knife reads “kizuna,” translating to ‘bond’ or ‘connection’. The Kizuna represents the bond between the knife craftsmen and the chefs who use the knives, as well as Masamoto Sohonten and Korin. We hope that you feel this bond when you use these truly special knives. For the holidays, save 15% off all knives! #favknife #korin #masamoto #kizuna

Korin’s exclusive Nenox Carbon Fiber line incorporates the famous confidential blend of high carbon stain resistant steels undergoes a sub-zero manufacturing process to ensure a long edge retention. Nenox was attracted to the smooth, lightweight and strong qualities of the carbon fiber material, but due to various issues of cracking and inconsistency, they were unsuccessful until now. Nenohi formed a partnership with a carbon fiber maker that produces material for Japan’s space shuttles, to use the most consistent and flawless carbon fiber for their handles. After over 10 years of research and testing, Nenohi was finally able to perfect this sought after line.
