    ThEoRy indeed that Gesshin looks killer but at five bones I can't justify it as my first Deba. Others have commented that you are the man to consulting about the Deba. I am honored to have your feedback.

    So I've asked Keiichi from BluewayJapan to sell me a 195MM in Blue #2 with magnolia/black buffalo ferrule octagonal handle and saya. He might be able to do that knife for me for around $200?

    What do you think about that configuration? Also seems like most of the Deba's come with round or d handles. Why is that? Cost? Would be octagonal be more advantageous? thanks again for your feedback.

    Guys, so i'm going to pull the trigger on this Deba. I promised not disclose the exact price but it was less than $10,000 and more than $249.99

    195MM Deba in Blue #2 Hon Kasumi (Choi and Spine rounded) from Sakai Ichimonji Kichikuni with magnolia octagonal handle with black buffalo ferrule with Saya and name engraving.


    How did I do?

    Gotta see the knife (in person) before we can say for sure Sounds like you did pretty well to me.

    I'm considering buying a 180mm deba from Heiji using his SDK11. Does anyone have experience with this? I originally had my eye on the Suisin Inox Honyaki deba but I am about to pull the trigger on a Heiji gyuto so...

    I never thought I'd like a deba, but I've been rocking a beefy blue steel tanaka 210mm, and been having loads of fun with it. If I had piles of wonderful fresh fish, like in the picture, I'd be gitty to use the deba.

    Please post some pics of your new deba in use...
