“I’m entering my 14th year at Korda. It’s safe to say that I’ve seen wonderful products come along during that period but this is, without a doubt, the most exciting” - Ali Hamidi
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.
Korda Developments has spent years painstakingly developing and pushing boundaries in hook technology, the result being the KAMAKURA hook point - the sharpest possible hook, sharpened post production to the highest tolerance.
“As an angler, product developer and Managing Director of Korda I can’t tell you how proud I am of this product. It will bring a genuine benefit to all anglers that use them.” - Damian Clarke
The Kamakura hooks are sharpened post production to an extremely high 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.
