This classic Japanese culinary knife is most often used 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 fillet fish, cut through small bones and skin, bone poultry, and cut meat. The Shun Classic Pro 8 1/4-inch Deba is a full-sized deba with a wide blade, dropped point, and a curved belly. Sharpened on a single side of the blade, it is nimble and precise and can handle most of the same tasks as a chef's knife. The traditional single-bevel design with a slightly hollow-ground back helps keep delicate foods intact and enables them to release quickly from the blade.
The Shun Classic Pro Deba is most often used to process fish and poultry, but also handles many of the same tasks as a chef’s knife.
