The fugubiki is a traditional Japanese style blowfish slicer. ‘Fugu’ or blowfish is traditionally served on a painted plate, and cut so thin so that the design on the plate can be seen through the sliced pieces. A common misconception about the fugibiki is that the knife slices through fish better than the yanagi because of the extremely thin construction. However, the fugubiki is a specialized knife for preparing blowfish and is not recommended to be used interchangeably with the yanagi.
