Ittetsu | 165mm Deba Knife (Shirogami)
Hand crafted in Echizen Japan with White 2 high carbon steel, these are an amazing entry level single bevel traditional Japanese knife. Grind and finish is rougher than the more expensive models, as is the handle, but getting a carbon steel hand-forged single bevel for this price is unheard of normally.

Japanese Kitchen Knife | Deba & Funayuki (Fish Knife)
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.
Godammit, ProTooling are the best.
A great knife from a good friend of mine. Good knife, hansom chef, the perfect marriage.

He provides only the best quality through all of the good relationships he has been able to grow throughout the years with the top craftsmen in Japan. He and his staff are amazing.
