Tojiro Deba Aogami #2 is a medium-sized deba designed fish lovers and professional chefs. The blade thickness is at hefty 8mm (0.3"), the blade length is 165mm (6.5"), so it is suitable for filleting larger fish. The knife handle is made from traditional magnolia wood with the ferrule from buffalo horn. It will be difficult to find a more traditional, classic deba knife than this one!
The blade will develop patina! The knife is forged from Aogami #2 steel, the hardness of around 62-63 HRC and is intended for the more demanding user who can handle and take care of it. The advantage of such a steel is that it has a very fine, gentle sharpness, is easy to sharpen and stays sharp for a very long time. Ballistol oil is recommended for the care of such blades.
