This Tanaka 210mm Deba is great for use processing chicken or fish. This knife is single beveled and is intended for right handed users. The knife has a kasumi finish and the core steel is high grade Hitachi Blue #2 steel. Heat treatment on this is about HRC 62. Shigeki Tanaka hand forges these knives and these are a really good value when compared to other knives in this category. Comes with a nice wooden gift box.
