BUNMEI Santoku 18cm
The Global G-7 Oriental Deba is a traditional Japanese knife with a one sided grind. This knife is very similar to the G-4 but with a single bevel. It is a short but heavy knife, made to cut up whole fish. The blade is squat and has some weight to it which helps with it's strength in chopping. The weight of the deba knife allows it to cut through fish bones to sever the head and tail from the fish. Using the tip of the blade you can also fillet fish. We do not recommend this knife for a general purpose cook's knife. If you like the shape of the knife but wish to use the blade for more European style cooking, we recommend the G-4. Also available in a left-handed version.
