This length is suitable for cut small to medium fishes, and especially good for compact home kitchen. This type of knives are specializing for a slicing of fish for sushi and sashimi. Its length and shape of the blade allows to slice through an ingredient with extremely a long stroke, which prevent cut ends of ingredients from being squashy due to multiple strokes.

Experienced craftsmen have finished this series of knives literally "1st grade". Knife types in this category are Sushi knives (Yanagiba) and Fillet knives (Deba).
