Ikenami Hamono Kataha Deba 150mm
Ikenami Hamono is based on Tanegashima island off southern Kyushu in far west Japan, surrounded by deep sea. Their knives have a loyal following of industry professionals the length of the country - fisherfolk, processors and chefs - buyers who know their knives.
Tanegashima knives are referred to as tanebocho and they are widely known for their high quality. There are four kataha deba knives in the Ikenami Hamono range, with blades of 13cm, 15cm, 18cm and 21cm. The 150mm Ikenami Hamono kataha deba is a great tool for breaking down whole fish of a modest size. We think this size hits a sweet spot for practicality - as useful and usable in the home as in a professional setting.
Ikenami Hamono also product a black-forged double-bevel deba at this length. It's similar in terms of weight and overall length but an easier proposition when it comes to sharpening.
