About Suisin Inox Honyaki 本焼 • イノックス

General knife care tips and warnings

  • Never wash knives in the dishwasher
  • Stain-resistant knives are not stainless.
  • Improper care will result in rusting and chipping.
  • Please wipe knives dry after use to prevent rusting.
  • Western style knives sold at KORIN have significantly thinner blades than typical Western knives. Use of honing steels or sharpening machines may result in chipping.
  • We advice all customers to always use sharpening stones to sharpen or hone knives.

For more information, please check our pages on different types of sharpening stones or sharpening tips.


These traditional style Japanese knives are hand forged with Swedish inox steel. They have the sharpness and kirenaga of a traditional honyaki knife. The Inox blades do not absorb food odors and have strong rust-resistant properties. The blades are well balanced, hand finished, and have a steel density that makes for easier sharpening. The octagonal wood handle fits comfortably into the user's hand.

Purpose of Deba

The Deba is often used in the Japanese fish markets and restaurants that work with whole fish, because it is designed to behead and fillet fish without damaging the fish. Although many use the deba on other meats, the deba is not intended for chopping of large diameter bones nor should it be used by slamming down the knife like a cleaver. For the best results, please put pressure on the spine of the knife to put clean and precise cuts.Originated in Kansai (Osaka) region of Japan. 

No left-handed knives are available for this size.
