browsing around here has very dangerous side-effects
I started to think that it would be nice to get my hands on a deba knife - it could even replace my 16cm Wusthof Soligen knife that I find bit too butt-heavy. The tasks would be anything I do not want to tackle with the thin blades, including some de-boning here and then. I am not looking for a cleaver though.
So - what would be a good choice? My approximate requirements/expectations:
- blade around 5"-6"
- carbon or stainless (I would find good reasons for both)
- WA or western. (I prefer WA, my wife prefers western)
- I am right-handed (so is my wife)
- say up to $200.
I have not browsed too much about potential models, though the Suisin Inox wafu Deba 165 mm from JKI looks interesting (just to give an idea)
