CKTG is proud to be the very first dealer of Yamaguchi knives outside Japan. Master blacksmith Yoshihito Yamaguchi tells us that his expectation is high and he's very excited to be offering these new knives to us.

Their shop is located in an area surrounded by many fishing villages, so they specialize in knives that these fishermen and chefs need. One of the knives that Yamaguchi-san specializes in is a thin, double-edged deba.

Unlike normal deba blades, this knife features a double bevel, which makes using and sharpening the knife much easier for western users. The blade is also much thinner than the classic deba (“usu” means “thin”) so it can be used for other tasks in addition to processing fish.

The blade is made from Shirogami #2 high carbon steel, which is one of the best steels for kitchen knives. White #2 is known for taking a really fine edge as well as its ability to reach good hardness levels while not becoming brittle. The inner core, or hagane, is clad using the san-mai method of covering each side of the jigane but not wrapping over the spine. The cladding is a soft iron with a kurouchi, or blacksmith, finish.

If you are seeking a great fish processing knife but are not comfortable with single bevels, this little beauty could be exactly what you have been yearning for.
