Mikado cooperates with many business partners on different levels. No matter if we work with a huge factory, employing thousands of people or with a small, innovative company – we’re mostly concerned and interested in the quality of the product.
We strongly believe that nowadays any producer who considers themselves a good one, should not only care about the production as such, but also take up the challenges of the market: see the innovation needs, undertake R&D projects. BKK (Black King Kong) is one such company.
For several years Mikado has been offering innovative products designed and developed in cooperation with BKK: JAWS jig heads, hooks for Method Feeder with leaders, carp hooks from the Territory range or catfish CatTerritiory hooks. They are all very popular and enjoy high sales on european markets.
After several years of successful cooperation, both companies decided to widen the partnership. As a result in September 2018 Mikado became the sole distributor of BKK hooks in Central Europe.
The history and market position of BKK are very impressive: being the leading hook producer in China, the company was founded in 1856 and at present is managed by the 5th generation of the family being headed by Mr Zhan.
Michele Gori from BKK Marketing Department tells us that BKK hooks are frequent award-winners for the design and quality, both in China and abroad. „All our products are exceptional. Any hook sold under BKK trade mark has been produced using all of our knowledge” – explains Michele.
The Hand Ground product range includes hooks that are regarded as top quality. Each item is manually sharpened. Raptor-Z is considered the „crown jewel” of the range and has been branded the best anchor in Australia.
„Any angler wants to be absolutely sure the hook they chose is sharpened well. But a good hook should not only be sharp. It has to be strong as well. BKK provides the technological solutions which ensure the offered hooks are both sharp and strong” – emphasizes Gori.
Thanks to the manual sharpening process, removal of the material excess from the eye and anchors and minimizing of the welding point BKK hooks are sharp, extremely strong and light due to their mass reduction. They are frequently used by anglers who don’t want the hook to disrupt the bait action. While using Raptor-Z hooks we can be sure that the movement of, for example, your MeanestCat crankbait or Bogey teaser will perfectly reflect the required action of a bait.
