DescriptionKSVG0001: Shun Classic Pro - Deba 4-1/4"Shun
The deba is a classic Japanese culinary knife. Used most often to process fish and poultry, it combines some of the functions of a cleaver with some of the functions of a chef's knife. The deba is used to behead and fillet fish, cut through small bones and skin, bone poultry, and cut meat. The Shun Classic Pro 4 ½-inch Deba has a wide blade with a dropped point and a curved belly; it is sharpened on a single side of the blade. This traditional single-bevel design combines with a slightly hollow-ground back to help keep delicate foods intact and enable them to release quickly from the blade. Our smaller deba is perfect for smaller fish, but many cooks like it for small chopping, dicing, or mincing tasks, too.
SHUN offers the finest Japanese style cutlery built in their first class manufacturing facilities in Japan. For the true Japanese cuisine aficionado, nothing compares to the scalpel-like precision of a
single-bevel blade. The updated Shun Pro line features the same incredibly sharp chisel edges as in the past and Shun's signature D-shaped PakkaWood® handles, which lend a secure and comfortable grip.The incredibly beautiful graffiti-etched blade is made with high-carbon VG10 steel, which takes and holds an edge significantly longer than other steels. The blade backs are gently hollow ground, creating an air pocket between the knife and the food being cut, so the knife glides through food with quick precision.The wide shinogi (or blade bevel) makes sharpening these knives on a whetstone much easier.
