The 165mm Deba is a traditional fish butchering knife. This one is the perfect size for smaller fish like mackerel or striped bass. The knife is constructed from White #2 steel and takes a scary sharp edge. These knives are known for their superior performance for the price. The blade is attached to a Ho wood handle with a plastic ferrule. The blade is constructed from carbon steel so extra care is required to avoid rusting and chipping.

You get what you pay for. The blade isnít ground with high level of craftsmanship,The handle wood is little bit rough looking and cannot be compared with handles coming from higher end manufacturers. there is a big hole where the blade meet the handle that I need to fill with epoxy for hygiene concerns,Now,all this in mind i would buy this item again should my purpose is to heavily use a deba made with shirogami,if I am buying a deba to have it displayed and work with it occasionally,then I would buy a more expensive Deba
