Debas are specialized tools for breaking down whole fish. This 180mm Tanaka Kurouchi deba offers premier cutlery steel, handmade character, and a competitive price to anyone interested in trying a deba for the first time or looking for a quality knife to customize. This knife retains the traditional single bevel design of the deba. Single bevel knives are ground on one side only and are sharpened using a different technique than Western styled double-bevel knives.

The knife uses an Aogami #2 carbon steel core hardened to 62-63 HRC, wrapped in a reactive carbon steel cladding. While the kurouchi finish does inhibit oxidation, the knife will patina with normal use and rust if neglected. The ho wood handle is d-shaped with a black plastic ferrule. These knives are handmade so dimensions may vary between individual examples.

    5  Butcher whole fish?, July 9, 2016
    Posted By: Kevin Draper - verified customer

    If you break down whole fish this knife is awesome. Blue steel is sharp, it stays sharp, and if you're not careful it will go through pin bones without you feeling it. It will make quick work of fish 2-20# and has the weight to knock the head right off while not affecting the edge. The handle isnt top shelf but the magnolia wood keeps its grip when it gets wet so that's a benefit. It gets the job done.

    This is a great knife for the money. Mine came scary sharp out of the box. The handle and ferrule are pretty cheap, and need some love. I sanded them down, which helped with the slippery gloss finish, too. I did break a small piece of the tip off while trying to take off a bass head, but I think I can work it out on the stone. Nice, sharp, heavy, inexpensive, blue steel.
