This is the Upgraded Kurouchi TC Blades 180mm right handed Deba. This Deba knife is an absolute work horse of a knife. Debas are used for fish and poultry butchering. This knife is "old school". It follows the old Japanese crafts rational, where the blade is at the core of this instrument. It is the main focal point, made with utility in mind. The look and feel of the blade is rough and rugged. This esthetic defines the Kurouchi finish. Made using simple yet very sturdy materials for its handle and saya, and retaining the high quality high carbon tool steel - used in all of our knives it provides a hard working, long lasting, kitchen knife - this Kurouchi (Rustic finish) is for you.

The Deba (pointed carving knife) is a traditonal Japanese style kitchen carver used originally to cut fish, ut today also used when cutting meats. Deba knives come in different sizes. The deba first appeared during the Edo period in Japan. It was designed to behead and fillet fish. Its thickness, and often a more obtuse angle on the back of the heel allow it to cut off the heads of fish . The rest of the blade is then used to "ride" aalong the bones, separating the fillet from the fish. Despite it's appearence, the deba is not to chop large diameter bones.

This knife is "old school". The Honyaki blade is made of one single piece of steel not a laminate of hard steel and iron clad - and there in lays the difference. The blade is made of a high carbon tool steel called O1. It is an oil quenching steel considered by many to be a superb choice for kitch knives. We certainly think so. 

Our line of "Upgraded finish" Japanese style kitchen knives provide the look and feel of a highly refined craftmanship - with super functionality and food processing abilities to boot. Made using high end materials for its handle and saya, and possessing the high quality O1 high carbon tool steel, a high polished bevel, while retaining the firescale above the shinogi line. This knife provides you with a hard working, long lasting, Japanese style hand made kitchen knife that is of exceptional quality and beauty.
