As was mentioned in the description,this is a good introduction to a Deba knife. The price is comfortable,the quality is there,the shipping was fast,the packaging was solid. It is a solid stubby knife,but I like the heft of it and it feels good working with it. I do cut up a lot of chickens at work and it is a welcome addition to my regular butcher knives.
i bought this as a gift for a friend after having used one for 6 years. the secondary bevel makes it a less challenging knife to maintain and allows it to be used for some other knife work that would be too strenuous for a standard single-bevel deba. a good example is cutting out the backbone in smaller birds—this would ruin a regular deba, but can be done very accurately and close to the spine with this knife. for filleting fish it does a good job, but requires regular sharpening to maintain the edge required for clean cuts close to the bone. i would note that the secondary bevel on both sides of the blade reduces the bias of the single primary bevel substantially. overall a great knife and one i use in my standard rotation.
