If you are a fan of Japanese cutlery and you prepare fish in a regular basis, a deba knife is a must-have in your kitchen knife collection. This type of Japanese knife is characterised for its large blade that is perfect for cutting and chopping all sorts of fish. If you still do not have one in your kitchen, we highly recommend you to get the Shizu Hamono Yamato Deba Knife in this page.

This knife has blade with a San Mai structure, which means that it is made of 3 different steel layers. It is in some way like a damascus blade, but in more simplified way as the number of steel layers is lower. Nonetheless, the different layers can be seen in the wavy line that is close to the blade's edge.

At the core of the blade, there is AUS8 steel with 0.8% of carbon and 14.5% of chromium. The first element is what allows the blade to have a high level of hardness (59 HRC in the Rockwell scale), whereas the second element is what helps the blade to be resistant to oxydation. The combination of both elements results in a blade that is easy to maintain and that has a great cutting performance.

The top of the blade is covered with a layer of SUS1A-1 steel, which also increases the corrosion resistance of the knife. Moreover, the blade's hammered surface gives the knife an original and authentic look. Each hammered surface is different, so each single knife is guaranteed to be truly unique.

Moreover, the handle of this knife is made of dark laminated wood with unique veinings on each different unit. Its oval shape makes it suitable for both right and left handed cooks. In addition, its polished surface gives a smooth feeling in your hand. Overall, the knife is lighweight, thus holding it during long shifts will cause less fatigue to your wrist.

Last but not least, this deba knife comes in a beautiful, wooden box. The logo of the brand has been engraved on the top of the box to give it more cachet. With a box like this one, this knife is surely a great option to offer as a present to anyone who is passionate about cooking.
