Ikenami Hamono left-handed Deba 130mm
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.
The 13cm deba is short, beefy and sharp. This is a professional-grade deba that is as beautiful as it is functional, very effective at opening and trimming the small fish that usually arrive in big numbers. It may start out at 13cm blade length but with repeated sharpening it will become progressively shorter and no less useful for that.
Ikenami Hamono also produce a 13cm black-forged double-bevel deba at this length. It's easier to sharpen and a significantly smaller investment.
