Mioroshi-Deba is the knife to go when you needed something that is sharp for cutting, long for slicing and tough enough to get through small fish bones. This Tojiro is hand-forged with Shirogami #2 core steel and a kasumi finish is added to the grind. Overall a very affordable Mioroshi-deba with decent fit and finish. For right-handed use.

About Tojiro 藤次郎
Tojiro is the large knife manufacturer in Tsubame-Sanjo, an area with a few centuries of knife-making tradition. Tojiro knives offer great value for the price. Established over 50 years ago, Tojiro combines modern technologies and traditional craftsman methodologies, and is a pioneer of stainless steel knives in Japan. Their philosophy is to improve efficiency with machines while respecting traditions when it comes to quality and finish.
Shirogami #2 (white #2) steel is one of the most popular types of high carbon steel found in Japanese kitchen knives (Wa Knives). It is not stainless, therefore you must wipe your knife dry after each use. Patina will develop over time. Rust may develop if left in prolonged contact with water or acidic food. Use a rust eraser to clean if rusts develop. Avoid cutting into bones, frozen foods, hard fruit pits.
Recommended cutting surface: wood, rubberized boards and high-end composites, and quality plastics such as polyethene make acceptable cutting surfaces, and will help protect and prolong knife’s edge. AVOID glass, metal, countertops, and other rigid, non-forgiving surfaces.
We recommend sharpening all quality Japanese knives on whetstones, as we believe they yield the best results for your knives.
