That's really cool looking. What a huge upgrade over the stock handle on that knife.

Yup! I did the handle as an oval with a flatter part on the top and bottom of the handle kinda like a Western style handle. Feels really nice in the hand, now I gotta go fishing again so I can use it!

Hi, I'm new to the board and also an avid offshore and inshore fisherman. I just purchased my 1st Deba from Mark and received it this week, but have yet to break it in.......fingers crossed for tomorrow and breaking it in on a Bluefin.
Anyway, that handle is very cool, I love the color. Do you or anybody else, including Mark, make custom handles for sale?
Thanks in advance and nice work!

I do rehandles through Mark at CKTG or you can shoot me a PM since you already have the knife.
Good luck on the BFT!

That would be great......I will send you a PM.
I absolutely LOVE using a Deba for cutting up fish! This past Friday we managed to catch a Bluefin and a few small Mahi and I used my new Tojiro Shirogami Deba 180mm on them. I had been using thin western style filet knives all these years and using the Deba was a revelation. Here is a pic:

The Deba's are pretty cool for breaking down Tuna!!! Congrats on the BFT!! Where are you located??

Thanks! I live in Montclair, NJ, but my father lives in Seaside Park, NJ and we fish outta Barnegat Inlet. The bluefin season has been hot for at least a month now, but with few fish over 50 lbs. Hopefully as the season goes we will get some fish over the 100 lb mark.
Btw, I got your PM and will respond a bit later. I appreciate the detailed explanation and pics!

Ah, ok! The NJ BFT crew! those are Baby BFT!
I've been up to Cape Cod a couple times looking for BFT, some of my friends have landed 73+ " BFT on the rods I built them over the past few years. If I go Offshore, it's usually to the Canyons; Atlantis, Fish Tails, Block Canyon, etc. Only got out once so far this year, hopefully there will be a nice eddy soon to bring some fish in!
