Thread: Gishiki Yo Bocho

  1. #1

    Gishiki Yo Bocho



    In the Masamoto catalog this says Gishiki Yo Bocho, meaning ceremonial knife. Do people actually use this for cooking or is it just for something else? If it's for a ceremony, what kind of ceremony is it for? Seems like a lot to spend on something that doesn't do any work!

    Never mind, I found a picture of it. I guess it really is a ceremonial knife. For some reason I still want one, and I don't even know what the ceremony is for.

    Very cool! Thanks for sharing. Breaking down a fish without touching it with you hands is a pretty neat ceremony. What's it called? I've had a tough time finding more info about it.

    Oh yeah, for those that missed it, there's THIS:

    I dunno guys, it took him like 4 minutes to even cut the fish. Not very efficient if you ask me. Not to mention, he ha a lot of waste on the tail piece too. Just sayin.

    If you're wearing a chainmail glove, it doesn't count as touching the fish. So I am also the master of Japanese ceremony as well.-Master Chef Giovanni
