Description:

Hideo Kitaoka san is a master at his art. He specialises in single bevel knives and is based in Takafu knife village. He uses traditional steels and White number 2 is an excellent choice for these handmade knives.

The blade is ground on the right hand side and concave on the other. This chisel grind gives it a dramatically steeper angle geometry than dual ground knives and thus makes is sharper. This geometry allows to fillet fish precisely and clean and give best yield.

  • The Deba is a single bevel knife used in Japan to break down a whole fish.
  • It has a thick and hefty blade which can cut the head of fish easily.
  • The knife is finished with a traditional ho wood handle and a plastic ferule.
