This is highest grade of Japanese Slicing Knife for balloonfish following in the wake of Japanese swords,which is created wi painstaking effort of top blacksmith craftmen and knife grinders The knife is made of Yasuki white-2 steel.
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 The Kasumi Blade
Like the Honyaki, the Kasumi is part of the Japanese cultural heritage, and is a traditional single bevel knife. Here, form and function dictate beauty. During the forging process, the Kasumi is formed by cold welding (hammering) a softer steel onto the hardened, supporting, high carbon steel edge. This softer steel forms the body and spine of the knife. The Honyaki, is differentially hardened and tempered, whereas the Kasumi’s edge is uniformly hardened and tempered. The Honyaki is made from a single type and piece of steel, whereas a Kasumi is made with two different types of steel. Sharpening the Kasumi is easier, because only the cutting edge is high carbon hardened steel. The “Mist” or “fog” refers to the soft sheen where the softer steel meets the highly polished cutting edge. The sharpness of the Kasumi’s edge is surpassed only by that of the Honyaki. The Kasumi, with a lightweight, water-resistant Magnolia handle, would be considered the standard knife of the professional and well equipped home kitchen.
