Mikihisa Small Deba Knife
Don't be distracted by the distinctive profile - these knives are devilishly cute but definitely serious. While Deba knives are primarily designed for filleting and deboning fish, they are also functional for cutting meat and vegetables. Ideal for garlic! This little Deba boasts a thick single bevel blade (right handed) which gives it a nice weight and hand feel for delicate and meticulous cutting. The blade edge and core is made from white high carbon steel (hagane), forged to hammered iron (jigane) for tensile strength. Accordingly, they're easy to sharpen and well known for their durability and long lasting cutting edge. The light wood handles may darken with use but resist breakdown. The hammer marked (tsuchime) forged iron cladding also looks super-boss.
