Moriya Munemitsu YHC is a subsidiary of Hitachi Materials Magic, which puts them in very fine company indeed. One fellow subsidiary is Yasugi Specialty Steels ('YSS'), producers of the cutlery-grade stainless from which this deba knife is produced.

Gingami#3 is a high-grade steel with high rust resistance and carbon-like hardness and edge-holding. Manufacture of this knife is highly automated and while that may not be as romantic as some of this company's sought-after wa-bocho, standards and quality control are industry-leading. Heat treatment is exacting. 

The full-tang blade with integrated steel bolster is attached to the sculpted goban handle with three rivets, designed to retain its beauty and integrity for many years. Goban is the Japanese term for a wood fibre and resin product that's very durable and feels great in the hand, offering reassuring grip as well as aesthetic appeal. Fit and finish are top-notch. A practical choice for the busy meat-lover's home kitchen.
