Daiichi Fly hooks are the finest in the world. They are made of the finest high carbon steel, which is hardened and tempered to an exacting formula that makes for a long point life and a very strong hook.
Daiichi hooks use a 12-degree constant taper ground needle point. This eliminates irregularities in shape, assuring no weak spots, & gives amazing speed of penetration.
They chemically sharpen in a special bath that deburs their points. Daiichi hooks come in multiple finishes that are all evenly and smoothly applied. Each hook is precision tooled "true" to the exact design of the eye, bend, gape & barb.
The barbs are an advanced "low profile" design that results in minimal weakness and less broken hooks and lost fish.
