The deba is the traditional Japanese knife used for filleting fish. This 180mm Suisin Inox Honyaki deba is an exemplar of this type of knife with the outstanding fit and finish that is Suisinís hallmark and a first rate cutlery steel for excellent performance. Honyaki refers to the type of construction of these knives in which there are no cladding layers, only a single piece of steel. In this case the steel used is a highly pure, small grained Swedish stainless steel which promotes keener edge taking. The knife is hardened to a Goldilocks ~61HRC which balances acute bevel taking with some toughness to extend edge life. These knives are ground on one side only so they require a unique technique for using and sharpening and are strongly right hand biased. The yew wood handle with buffalo horn ferrule has octagonal facets on the top and side and a radiused bottom for added comfort during use. These knives come with custom fit sayas included for convenient storage and transport of the knives.

CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
