Japanese Kitchen Knife | Deba & Funayuki (Fish Knife)

The Deba and Funayuki are traditional Japanese kitchen knives which are used by chefs for fish, or as utility knives on fishing boats.
Most Deba and Funayuki knives have a single bevel grind, with a thicker, heavier and shorter overall build. Although they are generally a specialist fish knife, some modern chefs do use these knives for other tasks such as breaking down meat and poultry. When used with the right ingredients, it can be an awakening experience.
