DEBA knife (single-edged)
DEBA(出刃) knife is a traditional Japanese knife whose main aim is to cut through fish flesh, its rib bones, and its head, without damaging the fish. The blade needs to be thick(5mm-9mm), heavy and hard to be broken since cutting bones puts the knife a lot of pressure.
Please use this knife carefully even though it’s staunch and hard to be broken. Sometimes if you handle the knife roughly, it could get chipped. In that case, you would put yourself in a bad cycle where you can’t cut well with the knife so you would use it more forcefully or roughly and as a result, your knife will become in worse condition. It is essential to keep your sword clean and polish it regularly to avoid those situations.
