Iki Stainless Steel Handle Tool 6mm
The word Iki Jime ( pronounced Iki jimi or colloquially as just
"Iki" ) is a Japanese word describing the immediate and effective manner
of executing a captured fish in preparation for eating. By putting a
fish out of it's misery quickly and efficiently following a
successful landing (in a Rusler Net of course! ) the theory is that by
using the Iki method of despatch a fish is less under stress than just
left thrashing about on deck or unceremoniously left in a chilly bin to
die. Which does seem rather crude and inhumane. When under such stress
it has been determined that fish release a certain hormonal enzyme into
it's blood stream that has a detrimental affect on the delicacy, taste,
texture and longevity of the flesh.. We bow to the superior Japanese
wisdom, culture and expertise when it comes to cooking refinement.
The correct method of execution is to insert the Iki point about 3cm
after and above the eye into the brain and nervous system as soon after
capture as possible.
We at RUSLER endorse this humane and practical `Iki` method of less
suffering than necessary....and every Boat with a serious Fisherman on
board should possess one !
