Sea Harvester Iki Spike
Quick and easy way to kill your catch.
A stressed fish is not presentable and it tastes different from a freshly killed fish. This Iki Spike will help you to humanely kill your catch. Insert this spike quickly and directly into the hind brain of the fish to cause immediate brain death. The fish brain is usually located slightly behind and above the eye. When spiked correctly, the fish fins flare and the fish relaxes, immediately ceasing all motion. The blood contained in the fish flesh retracts to the gut cavity, which produces a better coloured and flavoured fillet. It has also been known that the meat of the fish that has been "iki'd" lasts longer.
This Iki Spike is made of stainless steel, so it won't rust in your tackle box.

Iki Spike by Kilwell
The Kilwell iki spike is the most humane way to kill a fish, pushing the iki through the brain of the fish.
This process was developed by the japanese for sashimi grade fish and is called ikijime. There is no need
to put any angle on the iki spike as this may lead to you missing the brain and not killing the fish.
Features an ergonomic offset T handle and rust resistant stainless steel spike.
Like all Kilwell products these have a Kilwell Lifetime Warranty.
