Specialising in the manufacture of high quality kitchen tools, Satake has been developing knives of excellent quality and value since 1947 whilst constantly improving the technology and innovation used in their manufacturing process. Thanks to a well-equipped manufacturing facility, they are able to produce quality products at and affordable price and they offer various ranges of knives to suit the needs of any home cook or professional.
The Satake SK Deba is manufactured using SK Carbon Steel. SK rusts slower than other Japanese Carbon Steels such as Aogami and Shirogami and has notable toughness for a steel that is heat treated to higher hardness ratings. The blade is easy to sharpen and will hold edges for respectable periods of time. The handle on this range of knives are octagonal in shape and is made from durable Magnolia wood. The deba is a single beveled knife mainly used to prepare fish however, it’s also sometimes used for poultry.
Deba Knife (出刃包丁 – pronounced: Deba Bōchō) literally translated from Japanese means ‘pointed carving knife’. The Deba is not a carving knife though but rather a ‘carver’ of fish and mainly applied to breaking down whole fish.
The Deba Knife is traditionally used for cleaning, filleting and beheading whole fish but the sturdy blade and heavier weight allows it to break down other meats and poultries with small bones but is not suited for cutting through thick bones. Like with most Traditional Japanese knives the Deba is best designed for a single or specific purpose, fish filleting.
The Deba knife is a heavy, robust knife featuring a thick, wide blade with a pointed tip. The thick blade and heavyweight on the heel allow for heavier duty work while the middle of the blade creates clean cuts. The pointed tip is used for precision work and helps you to feel the bones of the fish when filleting. The Deba has a single-bevel edge allowing it to be extremely sharp. Traditional Japanese knives characteristically have single-bevel edges. Most single-bevel knives are right-handed so if you are left-handed make sure to request.
