About Korin Ginsanko 
The Korin Ginsanko series is a great stain-resistant series that provides the feel and sharpness of a high carbon steel knife. Very well suited for chefs that deal with high volume as well as chefs in very humid climates. Each knife is fitted with a Octagonal Yew handle to provide comfort and quality. Every knife in this series is provided by Suisin and each knife is hand crafted in Sakai.  
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.
Left-handed knives are not available for this line.

For Left-Handed Customer
  • 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.

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.
