Fugu Hiki Knives



A Fugu Hiki knife has a thin, flexible, broad blade about 6 inches (15 cm) long, and a wooden handle.

It is used to slice fugu fish into very thin sashimi. In fact, it is the only knife in Japan that is legal to use when filleting fugu fish.

It is often made in a shape and design meant to look like a fugu fish.

It is stored separately from other knives in order to avoid any possible cross-contamination from any lingering fugu poison.
