Seki Magoroku Redwood is a series of chef’s knives with a robust stainless steel quality and typically Japanese features. With its highly polished blades, the series includes both single-edged and double-edged blades that share the common denominators of stable and well-balanced functionality as well as sharpness. The design combines a minimalist shape with traditional Japanese aesthetics. The name stems from the redwood timber used to make the inserted handle. This hardwood has a naturally high oil content and is particularly moisture resistant.
The Japanese Deba knife or Deba bōchō translates to “little carving knife” - a part of the three types of knives that comprise the three standards of Japanese knives for cuisine along with Yanagiba and Usuba — primarily used for cutting fish and other kinds of meat.
