Blade & Handle

Kasumi knives like this deba are the produced by hand-forging high-carbon steel (white steel) with iron. The carbon steel becomes the knife's cutting edge while the iron forms the spine and body of the blade. This combination of Steel Types creates a knife that is less brittle than the honyaki-style, and easier to sharpen. Carbon steel blades like this kasumi require more delicate handling and care than stain-resistant knives, but are sharper. Kasumi knives are the standard blade of Japanese chefs.

Deba Knife

The sharpness and weight of this durable thick blade lets you glide the knife along fish bones to separate the fillets, as well as cut through fish heads, fish ribs, even poultry.

Additional Info.

Please be aware that these knife handles are made using water buffalo horn which is a natural material. We make no guarantee and do not take requests as to the color or patterning of the buffalo horn. It may be solid black, blonde or a mixture thereof. Thank you for understanding.

Warning: Carbon steel knives will rust if not maintained properly. Use the Tsukiji Masamoto or Sabitohru Rust Remover to clean oxidized blades.
