What kind of knife is this?

The traditional Japanese fish filleting knife. A very old knife shape used for breaking down fish and often poultry. Very efficient in filleting due to their single bevel geometry designed to be strong, reduce friction and have a very keen edge. While it takes a small adjustment in technique the results are often much better compared to using a western filleting knife. Strong enough to cut through fishbones and a much sharpen edge resulting in higher quality cuts essential for taste, texture and quality of the produce.
