    Remember the one time when I wanted the longest possible knife? Now I decided I wanted an immensely thick double bevel deba so I got this 165mm Tadayoshi at 10mm spine. What can I do with it besides breaking down fish? I’ve already got sufficient butchery kit for what I do, including a Munetoshi butcher and a Tosa butakiri as well as honesuki, sabaki, and so on.

    Poultry killer, lobster, crab, anything you want to whack hell out of but don't want to use a gyuto.

    Rick Theory has some utubers with a (IIRC) Tojiro Yo Deba that are well worth watching. My favorite is 1001 garlic cloves. I think the lobster massacre was also with the Tojiro.

    Out of curiosity, what was the longest knife you got in your previous endeavor? How was it :p

    I love my debas and honesukis, and seem to reach for them often as all-around prep knives. But nothing with a spine that thick.

    360mm Misono Dragon. It was so awesome but totally impractical so I sold it, but now I work at a place where my station has a huge board and want another one!
