This Gohumanosuke Yoshiro Deba is crafted from Yasuki White #2 high-Carbon steel. Designed for butchering whole fish, its thick spine, heft and broad profile allows the user to cut through fish bone easily. White #2, also known as Shiroko is a high performing steel that is tough, and very responsive to smoother grit sharpening stones. Yoshihiro master blade-smiths use a traditional forging method of Kasumiyaki. The result is a knife that sharpens with ease and holds its edge. Extremely user friendly, Shiroko is a popular blade choice for single-bevel knives among all ranks of chefs.

 

NOTE: Blade may rust if left wet, this is NOT a stainless steel.
