The Deba knife is a Japanese-style Chef’s knife, ideally suited for butchering fish or slicing through hard vegetables. It’s hefty enough to cut through fine bones, but is certainly not the heavyweight that a cleaver is.
This Deba sports all the features you’ve come to love from Global — light weight, sand-filled stainless steel handle and a razor-sharp thin blade.
The blade is somewhat thin and light for a Deba. It’s made of a molybdenum and vanadium steel alloy that allows for edge-retention and sharpness.
The handle features a finger notch for safety and control. It is also dimpled for a non-slip grip and unique look.
Note that this blade is single-beveled. That allows it to be even thinner than a traditional Western double-beveled blade, but also means it may be more appropriate for righties than for lefties.
