The KIYA Izutsuki Japanese Deba Knife is an old kitchen knife design updated for modern customers using the latest technologies. The original design was intended to be a cooking knife used in preparing sushi, so it should come as no surprise to learn that this product excels at cutting open fish and removing undesirable bits prior to cooking. Of course, the same sharpness that enables it to cut through fish with exacting ease also enables it to do the same for most meats. KIYA’s deba blades bear a chisel edge of high-end carbon steel, meaning that one side is ground for sharpness. However, the same steep angle also means that the blades are more prone to chipping and other kinds of minor damage. To use rest your hands on both the handle and the spine of this professional kitchen knife for gentle but effective cuts using minimal force. Each one can be identified by the “Izutsuki” inscription on its side. Magnolia wood and water buffalo horn handle.
Having first opened alongside a general store in 1792, KIYA has since undergone an ongoing process of expansion and refinement to become a powerhouse in the modern era. Its business remains the same in modern times as in the Edo period. KIYA’s manufacturers continue to produce high-end chef’s knives for a range of purposes and according to a number of designs.
