Deba knife is designed for filleting fish.
Unlike western style flexible boning knife, this knife is made from solid carbon steel to cut through the bones of large fish. Blade size up to 165 mm suits for cleaning small fish and above 195 mm is good for filleting large fish such as Snapper, Jew fish, and Bar cod. This chunky heavy weight knife has one large surface of edge on one side and a concave on the other to make the blade super sharp and food to flow easily along the blade.
Core Yasuki Ao Nikou knife steel is forged with soft iron to protect from fracture.
Each knife has a unique pattern called Kasumi from forging 2 metals together.
Handle is made from Japanese big leaf Magnolia which is naturally antiseptic, capped with Water Buffalo horn ring. Aritsugu is known as one of the 2 best knife makers in Japan with more than 400 years history.
Each knife is hand sharpened and edge mirror polished before being despatched. Mirror polished edge is surprisingly sharp and blade stays sharp for long time.
This knife is made from carbon steel and may rust if not maintained properly.
If the knife is kept unwrapped in a box or draw with other tools, there is no chance that you can keep your precious knife sharp.
This cover protects your knife from collision with other hard things.
Sheath is made from Japanese big leaf Magnolia which is naturally antiseptic.
