  • Yuji Haraguchi is a butcher and owner of the fish market Osakana. In this episode of Handcrafted, Haraguchi shows Bon Appétit how to butcher a whole tuna and explains every cut of fish you would see at sushi restaurants. To do this, Haraguchi uses five knives: the Yanagi, which is used for slicing sashimi, the Mioroshi Deba filleting knife with narrow thin blade, the Deba single-edged knife used for breaking down the whole fish, the Gyuto versatile multipurpose chef's knife, and the Yo-Deba. He breaks down the tuna into back loin, belly loin, pelvic fins, bones, and collars. From there, the cuts are broken down into saku blocks and sashimi like toro, chu-toro, sinews, sankaku, akami, tuna tartare, and aburi.

    that looks really tasty. That rich pinkish red is really appealing to me and I don't know why.

    This is how it should be. You use all of the animal for food. I watched a butcher doing this with a pig and he used all of the whole animal. 10/10!!!! Also those knives look AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!

    These are the kinds of videos you watch at 3 AM. 99.9% of us watching this probability don't even have access to a whole tuna. 10/10 still very interesting.

    I prefer my tuna to be very red. Very dark red because personally I believe it has a better flavour.

    what do you do with the left over? throwing them away would be such a waste. You can make tuna soup with those :)
