A PRO grade fish filleting knife made from Blue 2 steel with advanced edge retention and sharpness. The Deba is a heavier style single bevel knife designed for portioning and filleting fish and cutting through fish bones. Compared to the western filleting knife the Deba will cut far cleaner and give you best yield from your produce.

Handle is octagonal ichii wood with black buffalo horn bolster.

Kaiden B2 Honkasumi Series

Single bevel Japanese knives from Sakai region are famous amongst chefs the world over. While there are other regions that make single bevel knives, the benchmark has always been those forged and sharpened in Sakai.

While most in the know are fully aware of the hierarchy of steels (blue and white 1,2,3 etc) the differing grades of forging and sharpening finish are not so common knowledge.

Although different Sakai knife houses have differing designations for the lower grades most agree that the "Honkasumi" name should be kept for the highest finish blades forged and sharpened by the best and most experienced tradesmen. Kaiden Honkasumi follow this tradition by presenting professional knives of the highest calibre. A highly polished "ago", "uraoshi" finish and beautiful contrast in the hagane and jigane sets the standard for our B2 series.

Kaiden B2 knives are comparable to the top of the line "Masamoto KA Honkasumi" series (blue 2 / aoko) but with superior fit and finish, upgraded octagonal ichii wood handle and without the premium pricetag of Masamoto.

We are very fortunate to be able to present these knives to our customers.

Please note:

  • This is a single bevel knife (one sided edge) for right handed users only.
  • Only sharpen on sharpening stones. This knife should NEVER be sharpened on a honing steel.
  • This is a carbon steel knife. Keep dry and use camellia oil to prevent rust.
