This set includes the following:
1 x RYUTOKU – Yanagiba 210mm
1x RYUTOKU – Deba 150mm
The Yanagiba is like a carving knife on rocket boosters. It slips through food effortlessly and crazy sharpness of the single edge means you will never struggle. Its a true gateway knife for people wanting to get into single bevel knives and learn some cool tricks. When slicing with a yanagiba the blade will naturally want to pull to the left on a right handed knife. (The opposite is true for is true for a lefty. ) As the driver of the blade, you must take control and tell it where to go. Sounds tricky, but you will get the hang of it after a while. Still the Yanagiba can take years to master.
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.
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.

- 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, cleave or prise 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.
