Kagayaki Basic Series knives are made by Mr. Gotou’s fine Craftsman Team. For 40 years, it has been Mr. Gotou’s goal to make highly functional blades that have excellent cutting performance, blade geometry, edge sharpness and durability. He has made knives for many famous Japanese retailers and knife companies, and we recommend his knives with confidence.
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.

This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife, which has good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However even stainless steel blade kitchen knife has rust situation if you leave it with wet condition.
Question: For over 40 years, the Kagayaki Craftsman Team has concentrated on making Mono-Steel knives (One-piece construction) in VG-1 Stainless Steel — Why did the team make this decision?
About 40 years ago, high hardness stainless steels that offered good cutting performance were rare, so the main material for Japanese knives was carbon steel. At that time, many people thought it was impossible to make stainless steel knives with great sharpness and cutting performance. The experienced Kagayaki Craftsman Team challenged themselves to create a stainless-steel knife with a hardness level and cutting performance similar to a high carbon steel knife. They discovered VG-1 stainless steel, which has a relatively high carbon content, could offer hardness, cutting performance and sharpness that was similar to a carbon steel knife. At that time, creating stainless Mono-Steel knives with a high Rockwell hardness and high cutting performance was a great technological achievement. However, the craftsmen had to spend a lot of time and energy researching and testing how to make high quality, practical stainless-steel knives.

Wow this knife has been great for me. Easily fileted some snapper with hardly any meat left on the bone. The knife had a good weight so I was able to break through the spine with no problems. Great knife, great value.
Cut perfectly fishes, nice weight. Sharpness is unbelievable
