    I have a 240 Tojiro DP yo-deba and quite frankly I find myself reaching for it even to clean and fillet whole Atlantic mackerel. My chicken destroying device is a honesuki tho, a deba could never be as nimble around joints nor as useful scraping meat from bone. When I need to go through cooked chicken bones or entire raw carcasses I pull out the 240 yo deba.

    Thanks!
    Not absolutely necessary. Meant for fish butchery, though you can break down a fish with chefs knife or fillet knife.

    That said, get one if you have an interest in traditional Japanese knives and cutting techniques. I have an Uraku deba that I'm very happy with, use it a fair amount. Lots of cool factor holding suck a substantial piece of metal.
