The Korin Special Inox Orange Handle knife was created to have all the features that a professional knife should have. They are high-performance and easy to maintain and re-sharpen, perfect for both home-use and professional-use. The special-grade AUS10 steel used in making these blades has a much higher carbon content than other stainless steel but also contains added stain and rust-resisting elements, making this knife cut and feel like a carbon steel knife. Each knife was made with sub-zero treatment making the steel very hard yet durable. The Rockwell scale for this knife is HRC 60 which gives the blade a longer sharper edge.

The attractive orange handle is made of an easy-to-clean and bacteria resistant POM molded handle and topped with a stainless steel cap. With superior balance and a slightly weighted feel, these knives are comfortable in the hand and a pleasure to use.

The gyutou is a versatile chef's knife. It can be used for cutting meat, fish and vegetables, making it suitable for preparing Western cuisine. Lightweight and thin, Japanese chef knives have a sharper blade and maintain their sharpness longer than most other chef knives.

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.
