Deba knives are thick and heavy and are primarily meant to be used to fillet fish, but many users also use the knife for other less delicate tasks that require more heft and a robust edge. Nishida makes the polished series with White #1 steel, clad with a soft iron. with a Rockwell hardness of 61. His work is similar to several other blacksmiths in the same area like Yoshimitsu who he knows. To finish off the package, the knives have a nice rosewood oval handle and black pakka wood ferrule so these are great choices for left-handed or right-handed users.
