Tojiro DP knives boast a core of premium VG-10 stainless steel sandwiched between softer stainless cladding. Tojiros application of VG-10 in this line is truly excellent as it is a dream to sharpen, takes a ridiculously keen edge and holds that edge through quite a bit of use. Combined with a very high level of fit and finish and nicely convex blade geometry, these knives are an absurd value for the price offered. Indeed, many consider Tojiro DPs to be the best introductory knives available for cooks looking to explore high performance Japanese kitchen knives.

The Tojiro DP Western Deba in 240mm format is the big bad boy of this knife line. In traditional Japanese patterns these knives are used almost exclusively for breaking down whole fish. With this Western Deba, the double beveled edge and grind impart additional durability and versatility to this knife. The heft of the knife will split the hardest ingredients with ease and wonít be shy through heftier fish bones and meat and poultry joints.

  • 50/50 bevel
  • 15.8 ounces
  • Spine measures .188 inches or 4.8mm at the heel

    Please note we can only ship Tojiro knives in the USA.

    heaviest 10 inch chef's knife in existence as far as i know and you need every ounce. my scale measured 15.75 oz, over four ounces heavier than my wushtof double wide 10 inch chef's knife, one of the biggest, baddest on the market. this thing makes the wushtof (which would normally be the biggest by far in any kitchen) feel like a toy. great for things you wouldn't think of, cuts through a bagel like a hot knife through butter. noticeably sharper out of the box than the wushtof and $40 cheaper. no matter how you swing it, this is one bad knife. i know i got the heaviest 10 inch chefs knife on the block. use it, abuse it, and enjoy it!!!!!!

    I bought this knife to abuse and it loves to be punished. Its first mission was to dispatch and segment 4 dozen lobsters. Any regular chef knife would have been trashed, not to mention lack the heft necessary to chop through the claws. This beast had one small nick in the blade at the end of the task which I sharpened out easily. My other knives thank this deba for relieving them from jobs they were never intended to do.

    I was really amazed of how great this knife for its price. And the service they gave is 2nd to none. The knife arrived earlier than expected.

    Thanks again Mark!

    Big, Heavy, Sharp and Excellent Quality. I usually purchase MAC Knive but for the money this gives the Mac Ultimate Knife a run at about $120 cheaper. Just plain awesome.

    What can I say about this one? Man, it's a beast! I wanted something that could cut thru a chicken leg bone- this would probably cut thru a cinderblock! And for all that it's surprisingly sharp. I could pay more but I can't imagine a more functional Western Deba. Shipping was fast and the price was great...par for the course with CKtG. Thanks, Mark!
