Blade & Handle
Aoki Hamono applies their expertise in crafting traditional knives to produce knives that are appealing to non-Japanese cooks. This series offers the sharpness of traditional single bevel blades but are rust-resistant and not as brittle, so more suitable for cooks who don't want to work with a delicate knife.
The Yo-Deba literally means “Western deba” and has a double-bevel edge, making it ideal for cutting through lobster and crab shells.

i like the deba style but i'm not comfertable with a single edge.this double edge deba is great.i use it for shellfish like lobster.i used to use a german chefs knife but it just wasn't sharp enough and got blunt real quickly.this knife has a nice weight to it and is sharp too.
