About the Shape - The Yo-deba is the Western version of the traditional Japanese Deba. It is for filleting fish and butchery with boneless meat and cutting half frozen food. Yo-debas have a similar weight to Western chef knives, with the added benefit of a blade that is sharper and stays sharper longer.

About Moritaka Ishime -Moritaka Hamono was founded in 1293 and have been producing high quality blades for 31 generations. I think they know what they’re doing by now. Five generations ago the family made the switch to producing only Hocho (kitchen knives).The knives made by the Moritaka family have a real classiness and beauty. This series of knives are known for a thinness which translates to fantastic sharpness. This finish is known as Ishime, Rock Surface, and was not used on kitchen knives before this series. This series is exclusive to Knifewear.
