The Deba knife is one of the traditional japanese blade types. It usually ranges in size from 130mm 210mm and has a blade shape similar to a gyuto. The Deba However is typically single bevel and has a very thick spine. It is used mostly for breaking down and filleting fish and occasionally other types of meat. The thick spine allows it to go through small bones with causing damage to the blade.
