3 people found this review helpfulJust received the knife a couple of weeks ago, my first Deba, and I love it! I'm new to japanese style knifes but have been reading up on them for about a year and as a fisherman I was fascinated by this knife due to how incredibly different it was from western style filet knives.
Yes, the handle is nothing special, but certainly doesn't detract from the knives appeal at least to me. It's the blade that I found to be so wonderful! I couldn't wait to clean my first fish using this knife and was not disappointed to say the least. I used it clean a Bluefin tuna and some small Mahi we caught this past weekend and it was a revelation. I will never go back to western style blades for fish work. The knife was super sharp out of the box and the weight and shape was just awesome to use.
A great knife and even better value to me!
