Check in-store availability

About the Shape - Deba means “short fat tooth” in Japanese, and this describes the shape of the knife. This is the first knife a sushi chef would use when preparing fish, as it is used to fillet whole fish and butcher the boneless meat. The Deba is a traditional Japanese blade that is only sharpened on one side, which is called “single bevel”, and allows it to cut more precisely than other blades.

Don’t let the shape and weight of a Deba fool you; they are nimble and precise when wielded properly. This deba is great for medium fish like pike and salmon, and larger game birds.
