Deba knife 170 600pro
The Deba knife was originally developed and forged in Sakai, the port town near Osaka suggesting its main purpose is beheading and filleting fish, but can also be used for dressing poultry and other meats.The extra weight and width of the spine gives it suitable heft to chop and cut through thin bones. Although the Deba is not intended for chopping large diameter bones nor should it be used like a cleaver i.e. slamming down the knife. The broadness does not cause the blade to stick whilst slicing through the flesh because of the width and steep angle of the blade.
In the west, the knifes used for filleting are flexible, and bend around the bones. The Deba however is a rigid knife which requires wide sweeping strokes to slice the flesh away from the bones. The stiffness is a characteristic of the Miyabi 600 pro range, which helps with blade edge retention and compliments the thickness of the Deba’s blade to create a powerful knife when used properly.
