Misono Sweden Steel Series Western Deba (165mm to 270mm, 4 sizes)

Availability: Normally ships the same day

Made using a very pure Swedish high carbon tool steel, each knife in the Misono Swedish Steel Series is very carefully hand-forged to create a masterpiece of "Hagane Hocho" that features excellent edge sharpness, very good edge retention and is easy to re-sharpen (HRc. 60).

Because Misono knives look like many other classic Western Chef’s knives, it often difficult for inexperienced users to discern the quality of their blades. To help us express the quality of Misono’s knives to our customers, we thought the opinion of a professional who has over half a century of experience in the knife industry and decades of experience in using and sharpening many different kinds of knife. He clearly stated that in his, unbiased opinion, Misosno’s Swedish Steel Series knives are the best carbon steel knives currently being made in Japan.

This knife feature full tang construction, water-resistant black pakkawood (Resin impregnated wood composite) handle scales and steel bolsters for extra durability and improved blade balance.

An impressive Japanese –style Dragon engraving is present on the Western Deba knives.

The 'Western Deba’ is essentially a Western-styled variation of the traditional Japanese Deba knife that has a double bevel edge. It has a thick, heavy, and durable blade that is specially designed for the butchery of poultry, fish, and crustaceans such as shrimp, lobster, and crab - tasks that are not suited to the relatively thin blades of most Japanese knives. The heel portion of the Western Deba is capable of cutting through the small bones and cartilage of poultry and, when used with the correct technique, can safely be used to remove and split open the legs and claws of crabs.

Generally, Japanese kitchen knives are designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. Misono produces 100% left handed version with suitable blade grind angle and edge geometry from the beginning process. 

We believe the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy the fine craftsmanship and sharp edge of your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for a long time.



This is the Carbon steel blade kitchen knife that can get rust and discolor easily, and requires extra care and attention to prevent rust.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for a long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes. Please apply Tsubaki oil on the blade and keep it in a dry place.
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab.
  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

    Misono Sweden Western Deba

    This is a very heavy duty knife. I have the 165mm blade option, and it weighs in at 12 5/8 ounces. The spine is 6mm at the handle, which is pretty thick. I like the Misono Swedish high carbon steel, and have a number of their knives because I like that steel. It holds an edge without being difficult to sharpen. (Although you have to be comfortable with the discoloration, which I am.) At this point I have a sort of a collection. What I haven't decided is whether I like the Western deba better than the traditional single bevel deba; at some point I may figure that out.

    Misono 270mm deba

    This is a classic heavy duty knife by misono but it is not as rust resistant as the other knives in their series so daily maintenance is a requirement or it will develop a patina. Other than that it preforms admirably , sharpening is relatively easy as it is around 59- 60 hrc so you don't need to pull out your diamond whetstone. On a side note the knife is quite heavy so continuous use will be strenuous . Delivery is of course always on point as koki is very responsive and attentive to detail.

    Western Deba

    Hello, knife lovers. The knife is good, it copes well with fish, poultry and pork ribs, but you need to get used to the weight of the knife.
