I've been using the Kono Fujiyama Mioroshi for about 6 months now and I can honestly say I get more joy out of that knife than any other I own.

The profile is such that even at 210mm, it's nimble enough to easily remove the ribs off sardines or fillet a 10# salmon in one swipe.

Because it doesn't have the heft of a traditional deba, however, you will have to make a few minor adjustments if you're used to using a normal deba. Separating the rib cage from the spine will require the tiniest bit more effort. And you have to be careful when going straight through the spine to pop off a head. Smaller fish (2-3#), no problem. Larger fish will require a slight microbevel to prevent chipping/warping.

The price is steep, but easily the best purchase I've made from Mark. For me, this is as fun as a knife gets.

Personally I own a 180mm Tojiro Aogami Deba, and it's a beast of a knife. Takes a scary edge. Grind on the blade is very good as well as overall Fit and Finish, everything is nicely rounded. :)
