Kitaoka Damascus Deba 165mm White #1. Working in Takefu Village, Echizen, Kitaoka San specializes in the production of high-quality kitchen knives. As with all the knives in this collection, the cutting edges are forged from Hitachi White Paper #1 steel, a high-carbon alloy that is very hard but not so brittle as one would expect. The outer layers of the blades are formed of many-layered Damascus steel, which is called "Suminagashi" in Japanese. The blades' hardness is 63-64 HRC. These knives are not stainless steel so care needs to be taken with cleaning and drying the knife after use.

The deba is traditionally used for filleting fish as well as cutting chicken, pork, and beef. Its heaviness and thickness allow for easy chopping through fish bones, while its ability to take on an extremely sharp edge allows for delicate work and the filleting of even the smallest fish.

We highly recommend Mr. Kitaoka's knives for anyone making traditional Japanese cuisine.

      Solid Sharp Deba, August 21, 2018
    Posted By: AL

    Sharp as a razor. The damascus pattern is beautiful! Cutting through the flash, fish bone and lobster shell effortlessly!!! It's only good because there are some flaws on the polishing, at the back of knife and a black uneven area close to the ferrule.
