Tojiro Deba Aogami #2 is a small-to-medium-sized deba designed fish lovers and professional chefs. The blade thickness is at hefty 7mm (0.28"), the blade length is 150mm (5.8"), 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!

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.
