You will cut eel easily. Your cooking will go through a dramatic change!
This is the Unagisaki (eel filleting knife) made of blue steel. It is used to eel to make grilled eel rice bowl. The sharp tip of the knife is pushed into the eel near the head, and then slid along the body of the eel to open up the entire length of the fish.


Customer review
I have a big interest in Japanese culture. I like sushi, tempura, soba and manga(Japanese comics) but I also enjoy samurai and ninja. I was surprised to hear that the sword which the samurai used to carry still exists today. I managed to order a ARITSUGU knife and scabbard through a friend in Japan. When I held the sword in my hands, I was overwhelmed and felt I had become a samurai ! On top of it, I also purchased a sword stand. Once I placed the sword on the stand, I felt a samurai aura around it. I can't use this sword for cooking, but feel very pleased to have it on display. (From Australia)
