    Thanks. I don't know how I managed to miss the obvious category "Brand", where he writes Sakai Yusuke.

    I know this thread is about pettys but does anyone have any experience with the debas that blueway sells? I'd like something to start with a cheap one to figure out if I'll actually use it and this certainly fits the budget I'm thinking!

    No, but Brandon from FF always recommends the Hon Kasumi deba from Epicurean Edge and it is under $100...check it out.

    the FF looks good I am not sure about the steel , I personally would go for White 2 for deba.

    Seems to be hit or miss. I got the lefty version of it just to try single bevels. Grind is far from perfect, uneven on the holow back and a big overgrind on the heel.

    i bought one of these recently and am very pleased with it for the price.

    the handle is nice for a cheap knife, but the ferrule is plastic. has a really nice kuro-uchi finish and the blue steel is very reactive and builds a patina quickly. oob edge is average, but that's expected with a $60 knife. the blade road in the pictures looks a bit uneven but mine was much better.
