Deba

The deba is used in Japanese fish markets and restaurants to butcher and fillet whole fish without damaging the flesh. Although many use this knife on meat as well, the deba is not intended for chopping large diameter bones nor should it be used by slamming down the knife like a cleaver. For the best results, please apply pressure on the spine of the knife to make clean and precise cuts. Originated in Kansai (Osaka) region.
