Nakashima Hamono Kataha Ajikiri 120mm quince handle
A razor-sharp ajikiri is ideal for opening any pan-sized fish along the spine or belly and quick removal of head, tail and fins if that's your thing. Processing catches of modestly sized fish is made easy, and if you see a lot of fish on your board you'll get a lot of use from an ajikiri. As a rule they're are light, deft and portable, as is the case here.
This particular knife was forged quite some time ago and the Wakasa-based maker has now moved on to other activities. He may come back to knife making in earnest at some point (we hope) but for now his blades are something of a rarity.
Please note! We replaced the handle with this nice quince number (the original hounoki handle wasn't very appealing). Surgery was successful but we managed to touch the 'nisu' varnish on the blade, near the tang, while it was hot. No effect on performance, just a slight and temporary effect on cosmetic appearance. We ask your forgiveness.
