This traditional Japanese culinary knife in a compact size offers a razor-sharp edge and agile cutting
The Shun Classic Pro 4 ¼-in. Deba is a classic Japanese culinary knife. Used most often 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 4 1/4-in. Deba has a wide blade with a dropped point and a curved belly; it is sharpened on a single side of the blade. This traditional single-bevel design combines with a slightly hollow-ground back to help keep delicate foods intact and enable them to release quickly from the blade. This smaller deba is perfect for smaller fish, but many cooks like it for small chopping, dicing, or mincing tasks, too.
The Shun Classic Pro 4 ¼-in. Deba is part of the Shun Classic Pro line of traditional Japanese blade shapes. Because nothing compares to the scalpel-like precision of a single-bevel, the Shun Classic Pro line features single-bevel blades in pure VG10 stainless steel with sharp chisel edges and comfortable D-shaped PakkaWood handles. With their dramatic, graffiti-etched blades, these knives are visually striking as well. The etched design on the blade—different for each blade style—is similar to etching found on custom Japanese knives and used to identify the blade’s maker. Blade backs are gently hollow ground, creating a tiny air pocket between blade and food so the knife glides through each task with quick precision. Sharpening on a whetstone is practically effortless.
