This is a hand-crafted high quality Japanese kitchen knife.
It is certified as a traditional craft designated by the governor of Kyoto Prefecture.
A petty knife is a small version of ‘Gyutou’.
Petty knives have the image of a kitchen knife that cuts fruits, but the feature is that they can be used as a versatile kitchen knife with a small turning radius.
The 150mm blade is made of stainless steel and the core material is VG10 stainless steel which contains a lot of carbon and cobalt, therefore it is hard, good sharpness, and long-lasting, which does NOT rust like carbon steel.
The brand is ‘Manamoto no Hisahide’ and it is engraved in the knife.
What we like about this knife
– Made in Kyoto Japan
– ‘Simple is the best’ design
– Great sharpness using the best VG10 stainless steel
