Knife Service Update Due to Covid-19
We are accepting western style knives for sharpening and repair only. Western style knives are double-sided knives like our Togiharu and Misono brands. We are not accepting traditional Japanese knives during this time (these are single-sided knives like yanagi and usuba).
Korin are able to clean rusted blades or clean discoloration knives. However, there will be some isolated cases where cleaning is not possible. Watch the following video where Vincent explains some examples of such cases:
How to send your knives in for sharpening/repairing
Wrap your knives up very carefully using several sheets of newspaper. Please DO NOT include blade covers, boxes, or sayas. Please pack your knives in a shipping box with extra cushioning (bubble wrap and/or newspaper) and please DO NOT mail in in an padded envelope to avoid accidents during shipping transit.
