*This is our original knife created in collaboration with Yoshihiro Yaji, a traditional craftsman from Echizen. This was designed to give everyone who loves rockfish a more delicious and deeper experience. We pay particular attention not only to quality, but also to appearance such as color, shape, and pattern. The hammered eyes resemble rockfish scales, and the Damascus pattern is reminiscent of the tide. We want you to deliciously cook the rockfish you caught and enjoy the finest rockfish dishes with your loved ones and friends. We planned this event with such wishes in mind.
*The inscription reads "Hiroshi Kan". Its origin comes from another name for rockfish, ``Harukaeyo.'' Hiroshi is Yaji's shop name. The various regulations caused by the coronavirus pandemic are gradually loosening, and spring is literally coming. I hope that this knife will make you more interested in fish eating culture and fish dishes.
