Japanese “Deba” Kitchen knife

105mm Deba Blade

I picked up a set of Japanese kitchen knife blanks from Tharwa Valley Forge and this is the first one I managed to grind out and make a handle for. I attempted a coffee grind etching which came out ok for a while (image 6) but has come off pretty quick with sharpening on the stones.

The Deba knife is a single bevel knife used for preparing fish, but can also be used for vegetables.
