Description

Deba literally translates to "pointed carving knife" and can also be called Hon-Deba (true Deba). Japanese specialty knives are made with a specific purpose and they excel at what they are designed to do. In the case of the Deba, the knife is perfect for working on whole fish since each part of the blade has its own function. The sturdier heel is used to cut the head and tail of the fish, as well as the small bones. The more delicate tip is used to penetrate the flesh of the fish, as well as to guide the cook to the spine of the fish. The center of the knife, with its curved shape, is used to cut as close to the spine as possible to lift the fish fillets and remove the skin. The Deba can also be used to butcher poultry and small game, although this is not its specialty.

Simply explained, Aogami #2 developed by Hitachi Metals is a steel made from Shirogami #2 in which some chromium and tungsten are added for better durability and corrosion resistance. In addition to that, the higher carbon content of the steel allows for better cutting retention. Objectively, the Aogami #2 is an improvement over the Shirogami #2. For patina lovers, however, Shirogami steel will be more reactive to oxidation and could be an advantage.
