The Deba knife 17 cm KAI Shun Pro Sho is a Japanese kitchen knife with a pointed blade used mainly to cut fish and meat. The deba knife is used for ultra-thin slices that require a delicate touch, primarily for fish, though also used when cutting meat.

Deba bōchō (Japanese: 出刃包丁, "pointed carving knife") comes in different sizes, sometimes up to 30 cm (12 inches) in length. It is designed to behead and fillet fish.
Its thickness, and often a more obtuse angle on the back of the heel allow it to cut off the heads of fish without damage. The rest of the blade is then used to ride against the fish bones, separating the fillet. 
Deba knives always come in a single bevel.

The KAI Shun Pro Sho line was created as an evolution of the KAI Shun Classic. It combines the classic Japanese design with modern details and high-quality material. The knives of the line refer to Japanese shapes and cuts and the are all single bevel knives, according to the original asian knife style.

Thanks to an innovative etching technique, the straight side of the knives is blasted, which results in a sanded, matted surface. The other side is shiny polished, thus creating a unique look. 

These Japanese designed knives feature a classic VG-10 stainless steel blade with a hardness of 61 HRC. The knives are single ply due to a certain tempering process, which means that they are more stable, durable and with more than 4 times "super steel" density comparing to clad knives. 

The edge of the blade is single, razor sharp at a 16° angle, making them knives to be used mainly by professionals.

The traditional, asymmetral, handle is made from brown Pakkawood, a wood - resin plastic composite material. The handle merges seamlessly into the blade steel, while at the end, an inox cap is added for more balance and stability. 

The slightly curved, traditional chestnut-shaped handle is more comfortable for right hand use.
