Kamakura - Precision Sharpened Hooks
Along with most carp anglers around the world, we believe a sharp hook to be the single most important part of your tackle!
The UNDERWATER filming and observations on various different locations around the globe has proven that an ultra-sharp hook gives you a greater chance of hooking big, wary fish.
Lots of anglers have been sharpening hooks for many years, historically they did it because hooks just weren’t sharp enough out of the packet. In recent years chemically sharpened hooks led to a major improvement in hook sharpness, but even those could be improved by hand sharpening into ultra-fine points.
This tricky, time-consuming craft can give an angler a big advantage and help turn more pickups into actual hooked fish. Anglers like Danny Fairbrass, Darrell Peck and Elliott Gray have had to hand sharpen their hooks to get the very most from their fishing, as production constraints meant that an extremely fine point hasn’t been possible…. until now.
KAMAKURA Hook Point - the sharpest possible hook, sharpened post-production to the highest tolerance.
When you open the packet you will notice two standout things. The first is the consistency of the product, every single hook being sold has the same super sharpness. With consistency being the key we take pride in getting every point exactly the same.
The second is a wax coating on the sharpened part of the point, this unique way of covering the tip ensures they stay in the best possible condition until they are ready to be used. Simply push the wax coating off before casting out and you’ll be fishing with the sharpest hook you can possibly imagine.
I believe this process/product not only to be a step forward in carp fishing hooks but a step forward in hook technology in general! - Tom Dove
The Kamakura range has slowly and carefully grown over time since its launch in 2018. We now have 3 hook patterns; Wide Gape, Krank and Choddy plus Wide Gape X. We also have a product created specifically to compliment the Kamakura range, Kama Kote is a compound which has been specifically designed to prevent the corrosion of hook points, particularly those which have been sharpened.
