Tosa Tadayoshi Ryo Deba 150mm Aogami 1 Walnut/PC Double Bevel Ambidexterous
approx 251 grams 150mm cutting edge, 52mm wide at heel, tapering from 9mm thick, 285mm overall. Free forged knives vary slightly
Hand forged knives from the Tosa area of Shikoku Island, Japan's least populated island with a long history of smithing. Shikoku's thick forests, agriculture and fisheries have led to a local style of smithing that is characterized by rustic free forged knives and tools. Many Tosa knives are ryoba style; forged and ground symmetrically and are suitable for both right and left hand users.
Free forged knives vary slightly in weights and measurements, expect small imperfections in finish or small amounts of wavyness in blade or roughness in finish.
We have been very happy with the quality for the price and their old style country feel.
Ryodeba are a double beveled deba forged with a three layer san mai construction, they are suitable for right or left hand use. Ryodeba are used similarly to single beveled kataba deba and are exceptionally tough.
This is a reactive carbon steel. It should be mentioned that extra care is required, as the knife is not stainless and should be dried immediately after use. It will develop a dark patina with usage, but any orange rust should be removed with a light abrasive.
