Yoshihiro Ao Ryu Blue Steel Deba Fish Fillet Knife Octagon Ebony HandleProduct Code: ARDE165EH
Ao Ryu Blue wave forged and refers to the beautiful wave like patterns on the blade that are formed when Blue Steel #2 is forged with iron. The highest quality of high carbon steel is forged with masterful skill to deliver a Deba that blends exceptional performance with such exquisite beauty.
Our Yoshihiro Ao Ryu Blue Steel Deba Filet Japanese Knife has a completely flat ground on front (shinogi), and a concave ground (urasuki) with a flat rim (uraoshi) on the back. As traditional Japanese knives and cutlery value sharpness, the hard, high carbon blue steel #2 lets these tradesmen create a thin, sharp cutting edge on the blade. Its traditional, Japanese, octagonal handle is made of Ebony wood with water buffalo horn bolster. This knife features the traditional, mist-like pattern on the back of the blade from the forging process, and comes with a shitan bolster, magnolia wood knife cover, knife oil, and rust eraser set.
Care & Sharpening: Traditional Japanese knife making values a sharp edge, which requires attention and care. Sharpening and honing should be done with only water whetstones. Hand wash and dry only, and do so immediately if working with acidic ingredients. Only use on boneless flesh of fish.
