This is the longest deba in the Kitaoka Blue #2 line of kitchen knives. It is a quintessential rendition of the classic blade shape. Deba knives are one of the three most popular, traditional knife shapes in Japan. The Deba is mainly used for cleaning and filleting fish and dressing poultry and other meats. The heaviness of the very wide spine lends stability and extra heft that is needed to cut through tough joints and bones with ease. The thick spine of the blade gradually becomes thinner towards the tip allowing for a great amount of control in manipulating the blade when filleting fish and guiding it along bones.

The Kitaoka Deba is constructed from Hitachi Blue #2 steel with a jigane of soft iron. The blade has a single bevel with a mild concave back side and a lovely primary bevel on the front revealing the core hagane steel just shy of the edge. The Blue #2 core steel has a great ability to take and maintain a sharp edge. The knife is completed with a fine ho wood handle. A matching saya is offered as an optional extra.
