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.

Important

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.
