Tojiro Deba Damascus Aogami#2 165mm (6.5")
Best To Use
(click on icons for more knives)
Tojiro Deba Damascus Aogami #2 is a medium-sized deba designed fish lovers and professional chefs. The blade thickness is at hefty 7mm (0.28"), the blade length is 165mm (6.5"), so it is suitable for filleting medium-sized 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!
This deba features a beautiful Damascus pattern. The term damascus is used for stunning water-like patterning that emerges when the central core of the blade (cutting edge) is made with a harder steel and wedged between more than two layers of milder, more pliable steel. Damascus in itself has no practical value, but definitely adds aesthetic as well as actual value to the knife. It is undoubtedly the most known and appreciated look in Japanese kitchen knives.
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.
Tojiro is one of the top 5 largest Japanese kitchen knife manufacturers. They are renowned across Japan and internationally for their top-quality knives for a reasonable price. Tojiro's focus on advanced technologies, together with their insatiable dedication for constant improvements of their knives and materials, makes Tojiro's knives a must-have in any kitchen. Tojiro's main focus? Sharpness!
A big bonus is their great team which we are always very eager to meet and talk to! 😊

I ordered “home professional sharpening set”, the quality of the products and packaging was really good.
The delivery was really fast (2 days to Portugal) and everything was perfect.
I will purchase more items from Sharp Edge shop!!
Ordered two times from the shop (first time the Black Bunka Damascus 160, second time a variety of sharpening stones). Ordering process was easy and shipping was extremely fast both times (2 days across europe is a miracle these days!). Had a question afterwards and got answers from customer service within half an hour in the evening. What else can you ask for?
I will definitely keep an eye on the shop and the offered products and for sure there will be a third order (and a fourth, and a fifth.....).
The knife arrived quickly (to New Zealand), razor sharp, & with a beautiful custom handle fitted by Sharp Edge. For quality, looks, balance, and feel, Japanese knives are on another level and this is no exception. The craftsmanship and pride with which these knives are made is unequalled anywhere in the world.
Todo perfecto, buen cuchillo y envío muy rápido
I had wanted this knife for a while now (Takamura VG10 130mm) and couldn't find it anywhere until I found the online shop of SharpEdge! The delivery only took 3 days, despite me living in Germany!
It's already my favorite knife in my kitchen!
The knife is not razor sharp OOTB, but after a few strokes on 3K and 8K became scary. Great performance and super comfortable though the handle is not a typical Wa one. After all is a Takeshi Saji....
Excelente cuchillo y envío rápido, genial como siempre, hasta la próxima compra!
Love it!. Razor sharp, cuts like .a dream! Mate got the whole set!. He loves them too.' Love Hap 40 blades!. Have a few & when i saw this knife just had to have it!. Very happy customer!
Good service and friendly people. Fast express shipping I will buy her again for sure.
Received excellent service from Sharp Edge. Quick to reply and very helpful. Delivered on time to Australia. Excellent products.
I have by now ordered 2 different knives, and recieved the knives superfast each time. Its a pleasure to deal with Sharpedge, and the knives are simply beautiful made, and incredibly sharp😊👍
Completely as advertised. The knife is razor-sharp out of the box. The handle is long enough to be comfortable despite being a relatively small knife overall. It's well-balanced and the handle is spectacular. A functional work of art!!!
How to describe their job : incredible !
The team are always here to help, giving their advices following our needs, give answer to our question. They answer to our mail within 24h and are very kind and available.
It’s a real pleasure to order through their website. They have such a great Japanese knives line with different Japanese craftsmen.
I ordered two times from them with an excellent services.
I live in France and I was also pleasantly surprised to receive my orders within 24 hours, so the delivery service is also of great quality.
When I had a trouble with my handle they told me how to repair it. When I wasn’t able to do it by myself they just sent me a new one without any charge.
Just go for it !
The team at Sharp Edge carries an exceptional line of Japanese knives and provides excellent and responsive customer service. I've upgrading some of my Western knives to higher-quality Japanese knives and recently purchased the HAP-40 Petty Black 135mm (5.3") [Tottori Sand]. It's really a work of art, highly functional, and razor sharp out of the box; this particular knife is really too nice to take to a commercial kitchen, where I grew up, but a real treat at home where you can take better care of it. Sharp Edge also carries knives that are a bit less fussy and would do well in commercial use and are great cost-effective solutions. Many traditional Western-style knives with smaller blades inevitably come with much smaller handles that are difficult to grasp, but the traditional octagonal Japanese handles are especially welcome in that regard.
Amazing customer service!
Very fast delivery!
