Ok, Korin is having their 15% summer sale, so it is time to buy that honyaki takobiki (octopus slicer) you have been wanting.

takobiki (http://korin.com/Aoko-Mizu-Honyaki-Sakimaru-Takobiki-SP?sc=22&category=52101)

With that said, has anyone tried the Korin brand honesuki?

Korin Honesuki (http://korin.com/Korin-Original-Honesuki)

It is only $95.

Hmmm, she told me she didn't want anything.....

When they say that it means were not supposed to get them anything right? :scratchhead:

Anybody know who makes the Korin stuff? Looks decent.

It's a shame that honesuki has "KORIN" plastered across it. When will the Japanese learn that we want Kanji on everything!? It could translate to "piece of crap knife" on the side but dangit, its just gotta be Kanji for me :D

One of the reasons (the other being high cost) that I haven't bought anything from nenohi. I hate the stamp on the blades - at least the wa handled western knives like a gyuto. Ugh.

I know from experience you better get her something, even if only flowers!
I was told Suisin makes Korin brand. :thumbsup2:

If you want kanji on your knives all you have to do is put it on with a small chisel and a hammer.:beer:

Oh, don't worry I'll get her something nice. I just always get a laugh out of the "oh, don't get me anything" routine....


IT'S A TRAP!!

So far I have bought all my knives and stones from Korin, I have always received top notch service from them. :thumbsup2:

:lol2: I know its superficial, but I too have issues with stamps on blades. Especially higher end ones. I don't care how nice the knife is, if the name is just stamped or laminated on, it jumps out and smacks me on the face and says: Don't buy me! I'm not engraved!

Something about Kanji, particularly engraved kanji, makes me feel less conscious about the branding of the knife. A stamp that says NENOX! or the like just makes me think big company / Wustoff type knife. Now the knvies I have probably do come from the same type of company / facility that a stamp branded blade does, but just seeing kanji makes me think less about that. I'm weird.

Put all the Japanese writng you want on them but I think they should still have a brand name in English on the blade. I have stacks of Japanese knives that after 3 or 4 years I don't remember the maker of anymore. If I ever knew.
