This is highest grade of Japanese Slicing Knife for balloonfish following in the wake of Japanese swords, featuring a mirror-fish and ebony wood as well as an octagonal handle.
The Fugu-biki is a traditional Japanese style blowfish slicer. ‘Fugu’ or blowfish is traditionally served on a painted plate, and cut so thin so that the design on the plate can be seen through the sliced pieces. A common misconception about the fugibiki is that the knife slices through fish better than the yanagi because of the extremely thin construction. However, the fugubiki is a specialized knife for preparing blowfish and is not recommended to be used interchangeably with the yanagi
About Honyaki Steel
Honyaki knives are forged from one single material, usually high-carbon steel. The finest honyaki are then deferentially-hardened, the same method used for traditional katana. Their sharpness is the longest lasting of all Japanese blades. They are extremely difficult to forge, requiring a high level of skill and experience. They are very difficult to sharpen and maintain, and easily damaged if not used properly. They are also more expensive than other knives.
