Ikenami Hamono Kataha Deba 180mm
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.
For those of us with fewer hours on fish Ikenami Hamono also produce a black-forged ryōba deba at this length. It's easier to use, easier to sharpen and easier on the pocket.
