Saya (sheath) for this Deba Knife 180mm for left hander

Type of knife:
Deba Knife is a traditional Japanese single beevel Knife. It is used for filleting fish. Also it can be used for butchering meat and poultry too. Because the blade is thick and heavy,  It could be good for cutting through fish bones, chicken bones, crab or other seafood. Deba Knives range from 100mm to 240mm in length of the blade and different lengths offer different benefits. Generally blade length between 150mm and 195mm is  popular. Since it has single bevel, there are different shape for right hander and left hander.

About steel type:
White Steel No.2 is a high carbon steel developed by Hitachi Special Stainless Steel. This steel is standard and most commonly used for Japanese style knives such as Sashimi and Deba knife for long time. White Steel No.2  gives a very sharp edge and has very good edge retention. It is also very easy to re-sharpen. It will rust if it is left wet or left in contact with something containing any amount of moisture, so need to wipe and dry completely after using. For longer storage protect with a film of oil to avoid lasting. Recommended for first time of Japanese style high carbon steel  knife users.
