    I find that the Deba is a great tool to get my pork/ Ribs squared away.





    If there is a better tool for the job I would love to know about it.

    Ribs are the perfect job for a cleaver IMO but like most things it's subjective. I just wanna know what time you're serving dinner!

    It's not impossible, but really there's far better tools. I like light nimble knives for poultry. Petty or honesuki for example. I can open a beer can with a hammer but.....

    "Why two?"

    One for each hand!
    Looks like one Western Deba and a traditional single Bevel. I'd be a lot less worried about hitting bone with a western Deba.

    I used a deba for poultry for a while. I have also used or tried plenty of other knives for the work (paring, utility, honesuki, gyuto, cleaver). The deba wasn't the best or the worst. I liked the extra weight as the spine can be used for cracking bones, and the the extra length for longer slicing cuts (like taking breast off of bone or portioning afterwards) I also liked how easy it was to find and follow a bone with a thick single bevel.
    In the end I eventually formed kind of a Franken-knife image in my head of my own ideal bird-monster and ended up with a custom order.
