Blade & Handle
Aoki Hamono applies their expertise in crafting traditional knives to produce knives that are appealing to non-Japanese cooks. This series offers the sharpness of traditional single bevel blades but are rust-resistant and not as brittle, so more suitable for cooks who don't want to work with a delicate knife. The blade is actually made in the traditional style of the kasumi, but by layering Inox steel and soft stain-resistant steel instead of carbon steel and soft iron. The anti-bacterial handle ensures hygiene standards, and is ideal for cooks who butcher fish or meat.
Mioroshi Deba Knife
The Mioroshi deba serves as both a deba and yanagi, and was originally designed to save fishermen from having to carry two different knives on their boats.

I never knew about this style of deba. It's great because it has the length of a fillet knife but has the weight of a deba. Definitely recommend it to people who fabricate big fish like grouper. I didn't like the look of the plastic handle because it looks cheap but it's antibacterial so it's more hygenic I suppose. I'm not too keen on using carbon steel knives but I love the Japanese style knives so this was a perfect choice for me. Price is reasonable too. Love the weight of it.
