Any true fan of Japanese cutlery is familiar or has heard of the Japanese brand Tojiro. Founded in 1955, Tojiro has gained its reputation in the culinary and cutlery world thanks to its knives of excellent quality and dazzling design. Nowadays, Tojiro knives are one of the preferred brands of kitchne knives among professional and amateur cooks around the entire planet. 

To test the great quality delivered by Tojiro, we suggest you to try the Tojiro Zen Deba Knife. This outstanding kitchen knife was crefully designed for working all your fish preparations. Indeed, deba knives are the knives that Japanese chefs use to fillet fish with great precision. Thanks to the robustness of its blade, this knife could also be used to behead the fish. It is also important to mention that this knife is designed to be used only by right-handed cooks.

As part of the Zen series from Tojiro, this knife is made with materials of high quality that allow the knife to meet the expectations of even the most demanding cooks. The excellent cutting performance of Tojiro Zen knives makes them tools of extraordinary quality that anyone would love to have in the kitchen. 

Just as all Tojiro Zen knives, the blade of this deba knife is made of VG10 steel, which is a type of steel characterised for its high level of strength and robustness. Indeed, this blade has a high rating of hardness (61 HRC Rockwell scale) that gives it impressive endurance. With such a blade of high quality, you cannot expect anything less than a cutting performance of superior quality.

Moreover, the handle of this knife is made of white oak wood. This beautiful type of wood contributes to the beauty of this knife and it adds a touch of warmth to your kitchen's decor. In addition, the handle is connected to the blade through a bolster made of black polypropylene. this combination of colours and materials simply give the knife an even more beautiful look.

Finally, we have a couple of advices to give you so that you can make sure that your knife can have long lifespan:

- Given the high rigidity of the blade, it is recommendable to use a whetstone with fine grains above 1000 grit whenever you need to sharpen the knife.

- Never put in the dishwasher. You must wash it by hand and dry it immediately afterwards to avoid rust spots on the blade.
