Tamashii 180mm Deba. Made with White #1 steel with a gorgeous damascus finish. The blacksmith that made this knife for us is the great Shiraki-san who is a one of the most talented blacksmiths working in Sakai.
A beautiful Deba knife. Simple in design but beautiful. On can see the wavy pattern of multiple layers of forged steel on the blade. No more embellishment needed. This was a Christmas gift for my wife. It immediately satisfied her esthetic eye. It doesn’t really matter that she may never use it herself. I and our sons will happily do the carvings and food choppings for her. I give it a very high rating.
