Item #: 261.TK10.15
The thick and heavy blade of the Deba knife allows it to be used as a light cleaver too. This knife is suitable for cutting, separating meat from bones and chopping vegetables. The Deba knife was originally designed and used to remove the heads of fish without damage.
The Tokyo series of knives are crafted using state of the art manufacturing technology, high carbon content steel hardened to 58 +/-1 HRC and Lifoflex handles for a sure grip.
It's the raised thick part between the blade and the handle, which usually distinguishes the knife as fully forged.
The bolster acts as a guard providing safety balance, sturdiness, and comfort.
Beware of companies that manufacture knives with an imitation bolster as these knives are invariably cheaper in quality compared against a “one piece fully forged” knife.
