Deba is Butcher Knife.

It is used when cutting fish or bones.
We recommend that you use different sizes of Deba knife, such as large Deba, medium Deba, and small Deba, depending on the size of the fish you cut.
Please note that all Deba knives are made to order; therefore, it may take “several months” to deliver it after your orders are received.

As our kitchen knife is very sharp, we recommend that you use a chopping board made of unfinished soft wood. Wash, wipe, and let it dry after use to keep it clean and hygienic. If you feel the knife are not sharp, you need use sharpening stone to maintain it. Aogami Steel easily gets rust and requires good maintenance.

By sharpening regularly, the product lasts for a long time. Contact us for the maintenance or if you need any assistance. 
What is kurouchi knife?
Kurouchi knives retain the scaly residue left from the forging process, meaning that the residue works as coating on the carbon steel to prevent from rust.
The finish of Kurouch reduces reactivity on carbon steel knives, and give the knife a very characterful, rustic aesthetic prized by many knife enthusiasts.
Kurouchi finishes varying widely in appearance, uniformity, and durability. Rarely do pictures do these finishes justice as they have a very complex look and feel to them.
Of course, you need to sharpen the edge every time after using it even if the Kurouchi coating works for the sides of blade.
