Ikeuchi Deba Shirogami #2 Tsuchime with a 150mm (5.9") blade length is a single bevel deba (right-handed users only!), primarily intended for filleting fish and chicken. But this knife has (for a deba) a thin spine (3.0mm), so it can also be used as a small multi-purpose santoku-like knife.

This Deba is made of White steel #2 (Shirogami) with visible traces of hammer and the kuro-uchi protective patina (black part on top of the blade). The blade is forged to a hardness of 61-62 HRC. It is intended for experienced knife owners who know how to handle and take care of knives made of White steel #2, which will develop some patina due to the high amount of carbon (C) in their chemical structure.

The handle is made of Magnolia wood with a plastic ferrule.
