Deba: This would be the first knife a sushi chef would reach for at the start of each day to break down their fish. Traditionally the deba is a single bevel knife designed specifically for fish butchery, but it can also be found in 50/50 beveled versions called “Yo-deba”. The single bevel design allows the knife to get super sharp and lends itself perfectly to the overall breakdown of fish. The hefty weight allows the user to easily navigate through fish skin and certain bones.
