The Deba knife used when cleaning fish has been added to the lineup.
A knife for cutting or cutting fish into three pieces.

The back of the blade is thick to cut through fish bones, and the peaks are thick and sturdy, allowing it to cut through anything.

The steel material is white steel No. 2, which is popular among chefs for its balance of sharpness and ease of sharpening.
Rust will become less resistant with proper care, so it is recommended for those who are looking for sharpness.
(It may feel quite heavy for those who are not used to it)

If you cut it roughly, the blade will break, so we recommend that you put your hand on the edge of the blade and press firmly.

The length of the blade is approximately 15 cm, which is sufficient for handling most fish, but this time we have prepared an 18 cm type that can handle larger fish.

We also offer gift wrapping using Tosa washi paper as an option. Please use it as a present for your loved ones.

You can also add a gift (5 yen coin) as an option. We recommend this as it is a typical Japanese way of giving a gift that conveys the wish that your relationship will last forever.

Since ancient times in Japan, there has been a culture of giving knives at celebratory occasions as a gift to ward off evil and misfortune and bring good fortune. Please continue to use it to "open up" a bright future.

Thoughts on Ai knives

There is a reason why I decided to create a knife with a new concept called the Ai knife.

I wanted to make Japanese knives more hygienic, and I wanted to stimulate the manufacturing industry and craftsmen by creating new value.

In order to create value that is unaffected by time and culture, we decided to develop products centered on functionality and people.

When it comes to tools, functionality is more important than design. It involves people, not machines. I thought that something that is spontaneous and unique to humans, and in a sense resembles folk art, would resonate with the hearts of those of us who are tired of mass production and mass consumption. Possibilities created by craftsmen who would otherwise never have met.

We hope that the value of collaboration with artisans can be conveyed to everyone through the Ai knife!
