    The La Boquerie Market in Barcelona has been around since the 1200 A.D It is a must for any gourmet traveling in Spain.
    What is of interest is the Knives the Fishmonger use .

    Ok, I was going to post a photo of a fish monger in Madrid using the same knife but I can't seem to manage it today. Those knives run from huge to enormous! Brought one home but have never really found a good use for it here.

    those spanish knives from barcelona look suspiciously like the fish knives we have at a certain wet market i frequent. i would love to get one of them from that wet market, i have to ask the sellers there where they got them. they were carbon and hand made and hand forged. would love to show them here on the forum.

    I guess the Lobster/crab shell cutters I've seen do usually come with a table.

    The butchers in Madrid also used them for most of their meat cutting. Kind of funny seeing a guy cutting up poultry with a knife that large.
