Very impressive and the unique Kurouchi (“Black-forged”) finish of the blade and its beautiful color gradation. The Kurouchi finished section of the blade (See Top-half) also has a unique Tsuchime (“Hammered pattern”) texture. It contrasts beautifully with the cloudy grey colored Kasumi (“True mist”) finished upper blade bevel and the shining silver of the polished cutting edge.

The Japanese Deba, which is also called the Hon-deba (Literally, “true deba"), is traditionally used to clean and fillet whole fish, but it is also commonly used for breaking down and dressing poultry and other meat with small bones. The significant weight of the Deba is desirable because, with adequate care, the sturdy heel section of the knife can be used to cut or chop through the bones found in small and medium-sized fish and poultry.

Wonderful. An axe and a surgeon's scapel in one. Beautiful construction and fit and finsh as expected. A craftsman"s tool in it's essence.
It's my first deba. I'm really plesed with it, it's good quality at reasonable price. The knife is heavy, solid and the raw blade looks awesome. Very good service fron JCK. I recommend this knife!
Love this knife! Looks great and so sharp!
