The Shinkeijime / Ikejime is a Japanese technique of chopping fish, keeping them fresh and of better quality for longer. It is a very common technique in Japanese cuisine, due to the large consumption of raw fish, as in the case of the sashimi and sushi preparation.

The technique consists of inserting a pointed metal object into the fish's head, usually a little behind and above the eyes, causing the immediate death.
A wire is then introduced into the spinal cord in order to cease the involuntary movements.
Finally, the fish bleeding is caused through cutting the gills.

When storing the fish in a thermal box, it is recommended to put some ice on the bottom, and newspaper between the ice and fish, avoiding the excessive freezing.

This tool is a very flexible wire cable with the rounded tip, which facilitates sliding through the spinal cord.

Cares for the japanese knife

*Please dont try to cut or chop frozen foods and bones . Blades are too hard ,so they can chip. 

*If you buy a carbon steel blade knife , keep it clean and dry after use . Carbon steel knives rust easily.

If you are not going to use it for a long time ,please pass magnolia or olive oil and wrap in a newspaper.

*We recommend the use of whetstones when you are going to sharpening them .
