Koyanagi Blue steel #2 Kurouchi Buffalo Magnolia Handle 135mm

Regular price¥9,600
/
A mainstay of professional Western kitchens, the Petty knife is a small general-purpose knife used for peeling, shaping, and slicing fruits and vegetables, chopping herbs, and making garnishes. The compact size and relatively narrow blade of the Petty knife mean that it is very nimble and controllable, thus it is ideal for making precise cuts. Compared to a Western-style handle, the lightweight traditional Japanese handle of the Wa Petty knife moves the balance point of the knife further towards the tip, which makes it feel even more nimble and precise.

Aogami No.2 (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is made by adding Chromium and Tungsten / Wolfram to Shirogami No.2. This results in increased toughness and the production of hard carbide molecules which improve edge retention. Many knife users have noted that while Aogami No.2 is very similar to Shirogami No.2 in terms of edge sharpness, it has slightly superior edge retention.

Kurouchi Finish, the unprocessed (black) part on the top side of the blade has already developed a dark patina, which protects the blade and gives it a traditional Japanese look.

Good Knife Overall

I bought this knife for the JP handmade knife experience.
I would rate this knife as a smaller version of a gyuto.
The finishes ar not the smoothest and the blade was not straight but considering it is a cheap knife it's acceptable.
I polished the edge of the spine, as it had a sharp edge that was hurting my finger using pinch grip, and the handle was polished with a fine grain sandpaper and it is much smooth to touch.
It is easy to sharp (I use a King stone 1000 grit, and a leather strop) and you can obtain a very sharp edge.
Regarding the edge retention, needs to be sharpen every couple of uses.

Product Features

Handmade Forging

With the traditional forging process, the molecules of the iron material are finely tuned, leading to the completion of a "living kitchen knife" that breathes.

Durability

The process of heating and forging each material for mold making is repeated three or four times to quickly shape the blade and create durability before the carbon is released from the steel causing it to lose its original strength.

Sharpness

The blade is the most important factor in achieving the best possible sharpness. It is polished in our own blade factory to produce uncompromising sharpness.

Handle

The highest priority is placed on sturdiness, a sense of luxury, and a shape that is easy to grip and does not cause fatigue even after long hours of use.
