[Reasons for hand-finished handles]
In order to improve the knife performance with the above solid structure, if "making a delicate and tense blade" by severe quenching is performed, mass production of handles by welding will not be possible (because the risk of blade breakage increases)
For this reason, Nenohi Western knives are dozens of times more expensive than welding, and it is necessary to make a handle by hand, which can only be produced in small quantities.
Despite the fact that metal cannot be melted by welding, in order to assemble a large number of parts [without gaps], we also hand-finish ultra-precise stainless steel parts on Nenohi. If each part is not completely flat, gaps will be visible, water will accumulate, and rust and durability will be adversely affected. The precision handle making technology that prevents them is extremely difficult.
In addition, the handle, which is hand-finished by craftsmen, is composed of a "smooth curved surface", and when you hold it, it feels like the knife will stick to your palm.
