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. 
About Suisin 
Suisin knives are crafted from the heart. From the initial design to the finished product, knives are repeatedly put to test in professional kitchens before they are released to the public. These knives are the unique by-product of a collaboration between the craftsmen and chefs. Suisin craftsmen are constantly challenging themselves to find new ways to ensure long edge retention and easy maintenance. Their goal is to provide chefs worldwide with the quality and careful craftsmanship that will allow them the precision and control to effortlessly create beautiful food.
Purpose of Mioroshi Deba

The mioroshi deba is a specialized knife that can be used both as a deba and as a yanagi knife. This style of knife is much thinner and more brittle than the standard deba, and therefore requires more experience and skill to fully utilize.



Left-handed knives are available for this style. Please call customer service at 1-800-626-2172 to order.


For Left-Handed Customers

  • Left-handed blades must be special ordered from Japan, and will cost 50% more than the right-handed blades. Due to how each traditional Japanese knife is handmade by right handed craftsmen, it will take 4 to 6 weeks to forge and deliver.


Did you know?

  • Korin offers their customers a free maintenance service for all traditional Japanese knives!

  • The initial blade serves as a sharpening guide in the future. Free initial sharpening and uraoshi sharpening is available with every purchase. Please be aware that sharpened knives are not eligible for returns.
