Kajiwara – Double Bevel Deba – 150mm
Kajiwara – Double Bevel Deba – 150mm

Kajiwara
A third generation master blacksmith from Tosa, Kajiwara is noted for his skill and ability using traditional methods that create long lasting and extremely sharp knives.

This Deba can be used by Left or Right handed users. The blade is made from Aogami 2 Cladded in Soft Iron and fitted with a beautiful Rosewood handle.

 

The Soft Iron around the Carbon core is fully reactive and needs special care and attention. The blade will form a nice patina overtime that will protect the knife from rust.

We recommend purchasing a rust eraser with this knife – https://kitchensamurai.co.za/product/naniwa-rust-eraser-fine/

 

Deba

The Deba is one of the first knives a sushi chef would use when preparing fish. Mainly used for filleting fish but can also be used for doing some poultry work.

These knives, and a considerable amount of skill on the chefs part, are the reason sushi looks so good and why the fish is cleaned so perfectly. Done properly, the bones will be in one pile with almost no meat on them and the meat will be completely bone-free, perfect fillets.

 

Care Instructions:

  • Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
  • Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
  • Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
  • Never use this knife to cut frozen food. I’m sure you have a 4×4 somewhere in your kitchen for this job.
  • Never twist or cleave the blade.
  • Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on bamboo, glass, marble, slate, a plate, china, marble, arborite or anything harder than steel.
  • Store knives in a way that the blades will not knock into each other.
  • Never transport knives unprotected.

Most debas are single bevel meaning the knife is ground on one side only and the back side of the knife is flat. Single bevels knives have more acute angles on their edges that excel at cutting softer, thinner product like fish but in return require a different skill set to use and sharpen.

165mm Hiraki Nashiji

Manufactured in Niigata City, an area famed for producing tools and knives of exceptional quality as well as the finest Sake in Japan, Tadafusa knives spares no expense when it comes the best quality materials and craftsmanship. Their knives offers fantastic performance and ergonomics catering to both home cooks and industry professionals.

The Tadafusa 165mm Nashiji Hiraki is constructed using a Blue Paper core steel which is a high end, high carbon steel which can be heat treated to extremely high hardness levels meaning it can take on finer, sharper edges and maintain these edges for prolonged periods of time. The core steel is cladded in softer stainless steel with a rustic Nashiji finish which not only adds to the aesthetic of the blade but also aids in preventing corrosion. Made from thermally treated Chestnut with a black ferrule, the octagonal Wa handle is both comfortable and durable. The Hiraki, although referred to as a Shellfish paring knife, is commonly used to filet fish and the very meaning of Hiraki refers to the technique of filleting and butterflying fish.

Molybdenum Vanadium Stainless steel:

AUS 8 is a high carbon, low chromium stainless steel that has proven, over time, to be a very good compromise between toughness, strength, edge holding and resistance to corrosion.

It has added Vanadium to give the steel more hardness. This steel is very easy to sharpen to a razor edge but it will dull relatively quickly compared to high-carbon.
