Adding a deba to the bag

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello everyone


Hi I am looking for a deba to add to my knife kit, currently I have a Masamoto KS 240mm, Tadasuna 270mm Inox, and a Konosuke 150mm petty. I am starting to have to break down fish, chicken and etc at work, that require a heavy duty knife. What would you guys and gals, suggest. I know how to sharpen fairly well, not too well on single beveled knives but i can learn. Would like to stick to $300 and under, but if you have any that is a bit over, feel free to mention it. I would perfer something between 160mm to about 180mm. Carbon or stainless is both ok. I was looking at the


Morikata 180mm deba  



Mizuno 165mm or 180mm deba 



Masamoto KS Deba 





Masamoto KK Deba



I would really like your input, or if you have any other suggestions on other brands, or something that would do the same job. 


Thank you in advance.

Not so clear to me what you are going to use that deba for in relation to chicken.

Well I was going to use it to break down chicken bones for stock, fish bones, and use it to filet fishes and etc. 


Thanks for replying

At least for the chicken you better consider a honesuki if you can't deal with it using your gyutos and the petty. A single-bevelled deba may look very sturdy but still has a thin, fragile edge.

If you are in Honolulu You could order from Rakuten Japan.  I'd look for a Garesuki for chicken and a Deba for fish.  I confess to using my Deba for chicken, but I only use it to cut through articulations.  I don't use it in place of a cleaver - if you're going to chop bone get a cleaver.

Thank you everyone for replying to this post, I am just going to buy a bone cleaver for breaking down chicken bones and later purchase a deba for fish. 


Thanks allen
