    New Tanaka, first blood.

    My first experience filleting anything with a deba, a banded rudder fish, went far better than expected.



    The head came off easily with no damage at all to the edge. awesome.



    filleting was much less difficult than I could have ever imagined. after the first guiding cut, it nearly felt as if the knife guided itself through the next.
    the fillets came off cleanly with very clean looking cut surfaces.
    I had just recieved this knife after 5 weeks of waiting yesturday and feel fortunate to have a father that is a retired painter, who fishes commercially locally on a near daily basis. There is no shortage of off the boat fresh fish to fillet and eat.

    Awesome. Removing fish fillets from the bones and lopping off heads with a deba is one of the most satisfying things. Like it was meant to be there or something.

    You gotta enjoy the little things...

    I noticed that this is a left handed Deba but is photographed in a right handed manner. are you left handed or is there some special reason you prefer a left handed knife?

    unfourtunately i am left handed. It is a bonus however because the single bevel knives are much less likely to be picked up by a nuckle head and abused at work.

    Or maybe more likely because a real knuckle head would have no idea.

    How can you be sure the idiots can even tell it's left-handed?
