For Left-Handed Customer
  • For this knife, the LEFT-HANDED blades need to be special ordered to Japan and the cost is an additional 50% of the price of the right-handed knife. Please allow us to take 4 to 6 weeks.
Menkiri-bocho are specialized noodle knives. Once the noodle ingredients are mixed, the dough must be rolled out very flat, folded over several times, and then cut into long thin strips. There are many specific features of a menkiri-bocho that make it essential when working with noodles. In order to cut thin strips the knife must be very sharp, the blade must extend to the end of the handle to cover the width of the dough, and the blade must sit completely flat against the cutting board. If there is any space between the blade and the cutting board, it will not cut the dough all the way through and will ruin the structure of the noodle.

Knife Systems has developed a new style of menkiri-bocho out of Inox Steel for their Suisin brand knives. The Suisin Inox Menkiri-bocho is more affordable and easy to maintain than the typical menkiri-bocho, which were traditionally crafted out of carbon and sold for over $1000. Each blade is hand sharpened when packaged, therefore initial sharpening is not necessary.

General knife care tips and warnings

  • Never wash knives in the dishwasher
  • Stain-resistant knives are not stainless.
  • Improper care will result in rusting and chipping.
  • Please wipe knives dry after use to prevent rusting.
  • Western style knives sold at KORIN have significantly thinner blades than typical Western knives. Use of honing steels or sharpening machines may result in chipping.
  • We advice all customers to always use sharpening stones to sharpen or hone knives.
