    Old School Deba

    I saw this old Deba with a concave Hira. I heard this was somewhat common along time ago. First time I've seen this though. Thought it was pretty cool looking.

    Is it clad or honyaki? Asymmetrical steel bends or warps during the quench. This way its a bit more symmetric.

    Thank you for posting.

    yeah... you can still find ones like that. In fact, many are like that, just maybe a bit less extreme.

    Way cool, thanks for sharing.

    Good food is essential, where knives are an integral part of the process.
