Patriarch Okeya-San started his blacksmith shop many years ago to produce Kogatana blades. Ko means small and this ko deba is a small, single bevel deba used for preparing fish but also can be used as a general purpose tall petty knife. The knives are very simple but made with care and attention to the main purpose. Cutting stuff!

What we have here is a really nice petty made from the ever popular Shirogami #2 steel, better known as White #2. It is hardened to a Rockwell rating of 60 and then clad using the san-mai method of awasi. This entails covering the blade faces with a softer stainless steel while leaving the edge and spine uncovered. The cladding is then subjected to an ornate and good looking finishing technique called Tsuchime. Not only does this look great but it also aids in food release. Of course, as a carbon steel blade, this knife needs careful cleaning and drying after use.

The knife comes with a typical ho wood D shaped handle with resin ferrule that you would find in most kitchenware stores in Japan. All at a very nice price for a small blacksmith hand made knife!

      For the small things

    This is the best knife for mincing and cutting small food, the edge will last a long time before it need a touch up and the depth is perfect to keep your hands from touching the cutting board. Keep in mine that this little guy is meant for right hand use, if you enjoy good kitchen tools then I recommend that you buy it.

    Always wanted a Deba... also always wanted a single bevel knife. The handle is very standard, stickers came off easily without leaving a residue. Currently doing a CA glue finish as I do with all my knives on the ho wood handles. The only complaint I have is: The knife was not only sharpened on a grinder, it has a microbevel! The out of the box edge is not too impressive. The good: VERY small! I want to carry it like a fixed blade knife. Good balance. The finish looks fantastic, and the knife really has no blemishes. Cuts through things very nicely, can't wait to see how the heat treat responds to stones. even though I have not done too much with it yet, I would recommend it! Seems like a cool knife to take out fishing with you! Buy it! 5 starts if the factory edge didnt have a micro bevel.
