Used by top chefs around the world, the Nenox Corian line is well respected for many reasons. Made with Nenox’s proprietary blend of SD high carbon steel, which combines rust resistance, friction resistance and outstanding edge performance, each knife is hand shaped, sharpened and polished. The steel goes through a tempering process to bring it to a hardness of 61 on the Rockwell scale, which enables these knives to hold a sharp edge for an incredibly long time. The ergonomically designed Dupont Corian handles are comfortable to use and are non-porous as well as bacteria, heat and impact resistant. Above and beyond the steel or handle material, the attention to detail is what makes this line so special. In consultation with chefs worldwide, Nenox has continually made improvements and tweaks in this line to create the best knife possible. These Nenox knives will truly inspire you to take your cooking to the next level!
