ARITSUGU KURO DEBA WHITE CARBON STEEL 150MM / 180MM

ARITSUGU KURO DEBA WHITE CARBON STEEL 150MM / 180MM

 

This Deba knife from Aritsugu is for filleting or cleaning fish.

This is a very traditional style with black carbon from forging still unpolished on the blade.

Deba knife has a large single face of edge on one side and hollow, concave on the other side for the edge to cuts into ingredients and flow.

This edge shape is called Kataba and is the secret for the sharpness of traditional Japanese knives.

Unlike skinny flexible western boning knives, Deba is made of solid steel as we use whole parts of fish.

If you are only used to western style boning knife, Deba knife may look foreign but once you get hang of it, you will never look back.

The core edge is Yasuki White high carbon steel forged with soft iron to give shock resistant.

Each blade has unique wavy pattern called Kasumi from forging two different steel together.

The handle is made from Ho- wood ( Japanese Big Leaf Magnolia ) capped with water Buffalo horn ferrule. Magnolia is light, naturally antibacterial and increases grips when wet with water.

 

150MM is ideal for small fish and 180MM is for medium size fish.

 

This traditional Kuro Deba is handcrafted and size, weight or colour may slightly differ from knife to knife.

This knife is for right hander and each knife is hand - sharpened here at SAITO KNIVES by Masaaki saito using various Japanese whet stones prior to shipping for full performance.

 

Please note that this knife is made of high carbon steel and the silver part will rust if not maintained properly.

A grey coat of patina will form over the blade after use but this is normal and it protects material from further rusting. 

 

An optional saya knife sheath is available for protecting blade
