Watanabe Blade- My new deba

Dave5440 | Jul 6, 2011 04:05 PM

My new deba arrived this morning 14n days after I ordered it from Japan. It's a 165mm in blue paper steel . Boy is this thing sharp and quite hefty for a 165(i'll weigh it later).Mirror polish on the edges, but no micro bevel on the backside but it is polished about .030" at what looks like a 1degree angle. I just used it for only for a few min tonite as I was getting dinner prepped. Using just the blade weight it dropped into a quite hard green pepper about 3/16th" and a soft tomato about the same, shave hair-yes, push cut paper-yes effortlessly. I will do some more with it and write up a better review when I get time. The last pic is beside my Miyabi
