Holding it in one’s hand, Deba reminds of a heavy knife similar to a cleaver. Designed for slicing and filleting fish. Handled with a hammer grip, it is used to remove the head of the fish with a clean cut, while its sharp side allows it to slide on the bones. It can also be used to cut crustaceans’ carapaces. Nowadays it is a widespread multipurpose knife, forged with a single piece of steel. The blade tang is inserted in the handle while still incandescent, to ensure extraordinary resistance over time. NOT SUITABLE FOR CUTTING BIG MEAT BONES.

TOTIKO JAPAN KNIVES. A series of Japanese knives combining exceptional sharpening, easy maintenance and practicality. Their highly ergonomic Western-style handles, suitable for any type of cut, match perfectly with Japanese-style blades. Our chef’s knives are manufactured with care, following a semi-artisanal process using high-quality material. A manufacturing process which takes more than 60 days to be carried out. The steel blade is rich in carbon, and has an enhanced crystal structure which is obtained thanks to a precise cryogenic tempering process with liquid nitrogen. This increases strength, flexibility and hardness, giving a sharpness which can be compared to the one of a particularly elastic scalpel. The blade is resistant, with a long-lasting sharpness. Each one of our knives has handmade finishes carried out in 3 phases using Honbazuke method.
