    Love these vids Jon. I think I could watch katsuramuki all day long. I still suck at it though.

    Jon, is Ike jime commonplace in Japan, or is it mostly used by chefs from a certain area (Kyoto?) or at more high end restaurants? Have you worked with chefs using the technique to dispatch fish?

    not commonplace, but much more common, especially at higher end places or direct from the fishermen

    Thanks. Assuming you've eaten fish butchered that way, is there a noticeable difference in texture?

    yes... but there are a lot of factors that go into it more than just that. That being said, if it were up to me and i had the time, i would do it as much as possible.

    Some of the best restaurateurs here in NZ that also do their own fishing are great supporters of this technique
