The Tani Shirogami 2 Deba 150mm is a classic Deba. A heavy thick blade originally intended as a fish filleting knife. It can also serve as a poultry butchering knife. The deba bōchō first appeared during the Edo period in Sakai. It is designed to behead and fillet fish. Its thickness, and obtuse angle on the back of the heel allow it to cut off the heads of fish without damage. The rest of the blade is then used to ride against the fish bones, separating the fillet.

This is a knife with some heft to it as it measures almost 8mm at the heel. It has a single bevel set for right hand users. There is a very slight concave grind to the back side (ura) and the front features a nice primary bevel with small micro bevel on the edge. The Tani Shirogami 2 Deba has an oval shaped Magnolia wood handle with buffalo horn ferrule which perfectly match the look and balance of the blade.

The Tani White #2 line of single bevel knives are a new addition to this great value line of kitchen knives forged by blacksmith Tani san. He is a second-generation craftsman who plies his trade out of his shop in Sakai City. We are very impressed with the knives he is making from Hitachi White #2 steel. We think you will be too!
