The deba knife is a knife/cleaver for breaking down and filleting fish. Its heft and robust edge make it possible to safely cut through fish and poultry bones that would prove stubborn or damaging for a lighter blade.

The blade of a deba can be up to 1cm or more in thickness at the spine and can perform as an effective cleaver without the swing - set the edge to the fish and give the wide spine a solid thump with the heel of your hand for a safe, controlled cut. Where the blade thins toward the tip it combines with the bevel to make a very fine point, ideal for precise filleting.
