3 classic shapes

The Deba is traditionally used as a filleting knife and sometimes as a vegetable cleaver in Japanese kitchens. The front section is used to filet fish, the back section is heavier and can be used, for example, to split smaller chicken and fish bones.

The Yanagiba is a traditional slicing knife. With its long, narrow blade it’s capable of producing paper-thin slices. You get a clean cut and a decorative effect.
