The ikejime wire tool, or shinkeijime wire allows us to disentangle the fish.
It is therefore the famous destruction of the spinal cord which in a way is the keystone of the ikejime technique.
After turning off the fish’s consciousness using a tegaki:
It is advisable to use a shinkeijime wire which will be introduced through the head or through the tail into the spinal cord in order to destroy it.
This destruction will shut down the fish’s nervous system and slow down its putrefaction, following steps that we have detailed here:
Hookook shinkeijime wire are designed to be kink-free and easily find their way through the spinal cord. Their particular head is designed not to pierce the flesh, also to get stuck at the bottom of the marrow so that the user perceives that he has destroyed the entire spinal cord. Thus we are sure to have carried out the operation correctly.
Hookook ikejime wire, for the shinkeijime technique are only intended for the destruction of the spinal cord of fish that have been previously slaughtered using a tegaki. Made of a non-deformable alloy, and equipped with a rounded tip, they are used inside the spine to paralyze the nervous system. Their particular design allows them to stay in the spine, without coming out, and therefore without damaging the flesh of the fish.
