The Deba (which translates to "pointed carving knife") is a traditional Japanese style kitchen knife which first appeared in the Edo period. They are used primarily to cut fish, though they are also used to cut other meats on occasion. This 180mm Deba is made from a high carbon, reactive Shirogami steel (also known as White #2). A carbon steel like this needs regular maintenance and oiling to prevent rust, however they also also take a sharper edge which will last longer than stainless steels. The heft and shape of the blade is designed specifically to remove the head and fillet fish. Its thickness, as well as it's obtuse angle on the back of the heel, make quick work of cutting off the heads of fish without damaging the rest of the product. The rest of the blade is then used to ride against the fish bones, separating the fillet. The blade is attached to a Ho wood handle with a plastic ferrule. The 180mm is the perfect size for filleting snapper or salmon. These knives are known for their superior performance for a very good price.
