Traditional Japanese deba knives have a thick spine and hefty weight, perfectly designed for butchering and breaking down all sized fish.
Deba knives come in various sizes and generally have a single-edged bevel and are intended for right-handed use. We also offer Japanese fish knives that are 50/50 balanced, for either right or left handed use, as well as left-handed options for sale on the site. Additional left-handed deba options are available through special order.
