    Seems like a strange way to clean fish but I don't know what kind of nasty spine those had I guess. A little off topic but has anyone been to the public markets in Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi? I'm heading that way in a couple of months and will be looking for the Viet versions of Asian cleavers.

    There were some wicked cleavers in the Vietnam kitchen pick. Wonder what they are using them for.

    Ri-ri-yong was launched in 1979 by the father of current owner and master knifemaker Wang Chong-de. Wang studied blacksmithing under his father, who in turn had learned the craft from his father, before taking over the shop 15 years ago.

    The Wang family has been at the center of the blacksmithing industry in Xinzhuang for a century, but Wang is the only descendant who still operates a business selling products made with his own hands.

    He calls that a fish knife.
