    Masahiro tuna knife

    My Masahiro tuna knife arrived today from the apparently now forbidden company.com. Basically, a very nice 8-inch butcher knife. So, what do I do with it? I could hang around the docks down river from here and wait for the tuna boats to come in. They often sell fresh fish out of the hold but it is kind of unpredictable when. Last week would have been great, lots of people home canning tuna right now in my area. The other option is to wait until deer season and hope I have something to cut and wrap. This looks like an excellent knife for the job. Has anyone else bought and used one of these since the subject came up?

    Yes I have one and love it. It is a great butcher knife. I'm curious to what this forbidden company is though.

    Hunt around youtube. There is more than one video of a commercial fish processor using this knife. It will make a believer out of you but we aren't talking about fancy pants sushi tuna here. More like chicken of the sea.

    It was sold to me as a butcher knife and works great as a sort of scimitar. I couldn't imagine using it for fish.

    yeah... i wouldnt call this a tuna knife. Also, i think a lot of people might be confused as to the intended purpose of knives like this. In large scale production facilities and fish wholesalers, they need a quick and easy way to take care of large quantities of fish quickly. Knives like the ones being talked about here are geared towards that kind of thing. Chefs in japan will still use deba to break down fish (or maguro-bocho for tuna), as the results are much nicer and more restaurant appropriate. This is the kind of knife i would take out on a fishing trip or something like that where i might be filleting fish on a boat for casual cooking later. When i'm looking to do restaurant quality (i guess i always worked in fine dining so thats what i think of), i would always use deba, as the resultant fillets are cleaner and nicer looking.

    *i realize this has been said above, i just wanted to expand on it a bit

    I am assuming this is what we are talking about here. I've looked at this knife for butchering before and I still kinda want it. The video is in the YouTube awesome thread I think.
