Ikenami Hamono Naginata Toku-dai 210mm
The naginata derives its name from the pole weapon of feudal Japan, a quick google search will reveal the similarity in the blades. The pole weapon is for people, the knife is for fish. In this case, big fish. Think of it as a pre-sashimi knife, preparing large fish to the point where the sashimi knife can take over. It's very solid and very sharp.
The naginata knives we sell are primarily purchased by customers involved in fish processing, where users deal with hundreds of fish at speed every week and need tools that require minimal effort when filleting, slicing and lopping. The curved blade aids in slicing along the length of large fish and is especially useful for pushing along the spine edge-out.
The 210mm toku-dai ('special big') naginata is not the most portable of knives. For a more portable version that can be used on a boat or at a barbecue consider the 180mm length. The 210mm is best suited to fish processors and volume preparation in restaurants but is not out of the question for home kitchens with plenty of room.
