    Ok I went and looked. I like it, but what does wafu-deba mean?

    its a japanese style deba, but with a western handle. Its a true single bevel knife. The steel is softer, so it requires a bit of adjustment in sharpening (read-big microbevel).

    Ty John.

    I was wondering if it had to do with the blade type.

    Remember we were having a conversation about beginner debas? What do you think about this one as a beginner deba, Jon? Would it be a very different skill set when transitioning to a nicer wa-deba since the balance would be very different?

    no... not quite... its a nice knife for some things but not all things deba. I (and a lot of my friends) use them as a side tool ... sometimes to take off fish heads or on things where i know a deba might normally chip.
