What is a Yo-deba knife? For starters, let’s discuss what a deba knife is. A deba knife is a thick and heavy knife used for cutting meat and half frozen food, filleting fish and butchering poultry. However, it’s not recommended to be used in cutting up bones. Typically, it’s a single grind knife. However, a double grind type called ryodeba is also available. Generally, Japanese style handles are used in these knives. The knives with the double grind and western type handles are called yo-deba.

As mentioned earlier, a Yo-deba knife is the western counterpart of the traditional Japanese Deba. Yo-debas and the western chef knives are similar in terms of weight. But more than latter, the former has sharper blades and stays that way longer!
