    Experienced Deba users chime in...

    I work the fish section and have done so for the better part of the last 2 years. I've been using a Masamoto KK 180mm Deba the whole time, and use it for a good part of my day. Although I can get it screaming sharp, lately I've been feeling the edge dying on me sooner than I'd like.

    I was just hoping to hear from some of you guys that use a deba heavily every day. What do you like to use? I've been strongly considering getting a Blue 2 Deba, or trying a different maker...

    Cheers.

    try one made from 52100. look up Bruce Barnett in Perth or Keith Fludder there in or near Sydney. Bruce has been to My shop on several occasions to learn the intricacies of 52100 and my method of heat treating so he would be my first choice.

    I hate to be so narrow minded, but I would probably only ever consider traditional makers and traditional carbon steels...

    Can't comment on edge retention since I'm just a home cook. But Frank (Iron Chef Knives) still has Suisin white #2 180mm deba for 289 to your door. You can get Hide deba in white #2 for about 250 or blue #1 for about 450. Jon is vouching, of course, for both brands, should be worth considering.

    Or treat yourself and get a Shig deba from Maxim. 180mm one (170mm cutting edge) is still available.

    Wombat? Too slow I think. Probably either Tassie Devil, or the Giant roo.

    I emailed Maxim, we'll see if he gets back to me.

    How do you like your Shig deba, schanop?
