Ko-bocho means small knife. It's a knife style for a multitude of applications, from fish to meat to vegetables leafy and root, sometimes favouring one over the others (although the thicker ones tend to be called sabaki-bocho). The key is that blade length is fairly modest, as is the case with this blade from Nakamura Hamono.
Modest length, modest investment, great sharpness and ease of use. Forty-plus years of forging experience distilled into a good all-round purpose kitchen knife with traditional black-forged appeal. You can't really go wrong.
