The Deba knife 15.5 cm KAI Seki Magoroku Redwood 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 Seki Magoroku Redwood captivates by its mirror-finished blade and the exquisitely polished edge that gives the series a high cutting performance. 

These Japanese designed knives feature an AUS8 vanadium - molybdenium stainless steel polished blade with a hardness of 58±1 HRC that lend your kitchen the unmistakable Far Eastern flair. 

The traditional chestnut-shaped handle is made from Redwood. This hardwood naturally has high oil content and is therefore water-resistant. The polished polypropylene bracket adds harmony to the wood’s modern colour. 

Because of the Japanese design, these knives don’t have a bolster so the whole edge can be used and the entire length can be sharpened.
The series features traditional Japanese single-bevel blade shapes as well as a selection of double-bevel Western-style blade shapes. Single-beveled blades excel when extremely precise cuts are needed—for example, when preparing sushi. 
Double-beveled blades offer ease of use and versatility. 
The slightly curved, traditional chestnut-shaped handle makes every knife of the line a right hand knife. 


Made in Japan with the latest technology of the cutlery industry.
