AUS-8 Magnolia Round Handle with Buffalo horn bolster

Deba

Deba knives are often used to fillet fish. The blade is the heaviest of all Japanese knives and is capable of chopping through fish bones and heads easily.Professionals use a 210 mm type to cut Sea Bream and Yellow tail and a 150 mm type to cut small fish such as horse mackerel. For home use, a 150 mm knife is often used.

AUS-8

Stainless Steel

AUS-8 Steel is a standard stainless steel that is often used in knives due to its corrosion resistance and ease of sharpening in comparison to other steels.

Handle

Forge Welded

Forging Process

A forge welded blade is essentially a blade made of more than one billet of steel. There are many variations of technique and steel combinations. At its most simple, a forge welded blade is two billets of steel heated and hammer together to form one unified piece. The steel will then be shaped by hammer into the desired blade shape. Hardened and tempered, then ground, sharpened and polished. A forge welded blade has higher strength and edge retention than a stamped blade.

A knife store that has supported the history of knives and food culture in Japan.

It has been 600 years since the birth of swordmaking in the Sakai region of Japan. Sakai Ichimonji Mitsuhide's and it's craftsmen continue to build on that legacy by producing the finest blades in Japan.
This is where the culture of completing a dish of sashimi by "just cutting" and the culture of expressing sharpness as "taste" was born.
For 70 years, we have been connecting the spirit of Sakai's craftsmen with the passion of chefs in Osaka's kitchen equipment shopping district, known as the kitchen of Japan.
We are very happy that our knives can be used by people all over the world.
