Seki Kanetsugu applies their expertise in crafting traditional knives to produce knives that are appealing to non-Japanese cooks. This knife offers the sharpness of a traditional single bevel blade but is rust-resistant and not as brittle, so more suitable for cooks who don't want to work with a delicate knife. Also the handle is made with plastic for hygiene purpose so it is ideal for commercial use.
One of the reasons why Kanetsugu's brand name is not more widespread is because they are the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of several famous German and Japanese knife brands.
The sharpness and weight of this deba lets you glide the knife along fish bones to separate the fillets, as well as cut through fish heads, fish ribs, even poultry.
