Our Japanese traditional-style Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan knives are hand forged and hand sharpened by our team of top-ranking forge-smiths, sharpeners and craftsmen in Sakai City, Osaka. We have confidence that these knives will be well received because of the following advantages:
A cutting edge of high carbon Hitachi Gingami No.3 that is welded forged with soft stainless steel for increased toughness and ease of re-sharpening.
Gingami No.3 is a high-grade Japanese stainless cutlery steel for the cutting performance and edge retention similar to high carbon steels, but improved resistance to corrosion.
This knife comes with a comfortable octagonal magnolia wood handle with black water buffalo horn ferrule / bolster, and includes a matching magnolia wood Saya (“Sheath”) -with black pakkawood saya pin- for safekeeping.
The Ai-deba has a very similar blade profile to the Hon-deba, but has a somewhat narrower blade and is thinner and lighter in weight. When compared to the Mioroshi Deba, the blade of the Ai-deba is typically taller, thicker, and more substantial. The relatively thin blade means that the Ai-deba is far better at slicing fish than the Hon-deba. It is ideal for dressing and filleting medium-sized fish with soft bones, such as mackerel. The Ai-deba has become increasingly popular in the Japanese market in recent year, and it is often chosen instead of the Hon-deba because people find the comparatively lightweight blade easier to handle.
