For Left-Handed Customer

Did you know?

  • Korin offers their customers a free maintenance service for all traditional Japanese knives!

  • The initial blade serves as a sharpening guide in the future. Free initial sharpening and uraoshi sharpening is available with every purchase. Please be aware that sharpened knives are not eligible for returns.

- As seen on Fox News, October 2011

Each year, many visitors to Japan can count a trip to Tokyo’s Tsukiji Fish Market as a highlight of their travels. At the market it is a special treat to see tuna purveyors wielding these impressive maguro knives. These lengthy knives are ingeniously designed and crafted with a softer carbon steel blade than other knives, making it easier to repair minor chipping damage sustained to the blade during the strenuous job of filleting large fish.

General knife care tips and warnings

  • Carbons knives are not stain resistant. Rust and discoloration will occur after cutting acidic ingredients or if left wet.
  • Please wipe knives dry after use to prevent rusting. Korin recommends wiping carbon knives with tsubaki oil to keep moisture off the knife.
  • Traditional Japanese knives have significantly thinner and more delicate blades than Western knives. The use of honing steels or sharpening machines will result in chipping.
  • Please do not attempt to cut through bones with traditional Japanese knives, unless it is a butchering knife.
  • Traditional Japanese knives could slightly bend, due to the heat tempering of the two different carbon quality steel in the blade. Korin offers customers a free service to prepare the knife before use.
  • We advise all customers to have a skilled sharpener put the initial blade on knives, due to how the initial blade serves as a sharpening guide in the future. Korin offers a complimentary initial sharpening and uraoshi sharpening with every purchase.
  • It is important to always flatten sharpening stones with a stone fixer to avoid knives from warping shapes.
  • Please always use sharpening stones to sharpen traditional Japanese knives.

Precaución

  • Los cuchillos de carbón son propensos a oxidarse. A modo de evitar dicho comportamiento, se recomienda limpiar la superficie con un trapo limpio y seco después de cada uso.
