Japanese Scaling tool

edited October 2019 in General Fishing
Bought this some time back online thru a fren

Tested it out on small fishes and it works pretty well. Both a small Bartail Flathead (which used the serrated edge) and a Javelin Grunter which used the normal edge.

Managed to turn these 2 fishes

into this

I tried this tool on bigger fishes

And got them cleaned up pretty nicely.

As shown in their demo videos, it is just simply pushing against the scales and allowing them to gather easily onto the tool. The larger the scales, the easier and more convenient it is to gather into a bunch to throw away.

Really 2 thumbs up.

Videos in the site explain how it's used.

New update

Angler's Outfitter does have this scaler in stock.  Check with them.

    Hi bro, where to buy this?
  • Michael Lim
    I got this online, but they only ship within Japan. You'll need to get arrangements for re-shipping back to SG.

    My fren helped me get it. 8)

    Thanks micheal, does it work as well as advertised? (Eg. The scale does come off easily and collects onto the scaler.)

    Quite well.... almost 90% are collected on the tool, and only when I use the serated edge to scrape the part under the spines, do some scales fly out (I wasn't using it according to instruction though, I was supposed to use the non serated part but go lazy and try to work around...)

    Push, scales collect, lift up and remove those scales and repeat. If you follow this instruction, it is faultless...
