A beautiful little petty made from shirogami steel with a kurouchi finish. 

 

SHAPE: Petty. The smallest knife in the collection and perfect for everyday slicing tasks.

STEEL: Shirogami (white) 2 steel. It is a reactive carbon steel which is easy to sharpen and holds an edge well. This steel is frequently chosen for traditional-style Japanese knives.  

FINISH: Kurouchi. This is a traditional, rustic finish achieved by leaving the furnace scale from the forging process on the blade rather than polishing it off. It has the advantage of reducing the reactivity of the surface of the knife and gives the blade a stylish, matt black finish. 

HANDLE: D shaped chestnut wood handle with a right hand bias although a left hander would be fine with this handle.

LENGTH: 140mm

MAKER: Yauchi, Sakai City, Japan

BEST FOR: Perfect for those who like a smaller knife.

 

SAUNDERS SAYS: "I bought one of these for Symonds [*cough* me] while in Japan, nuff said."

 

The spec:

BLADE LENGTH: 140mm

OVERALL LENGTH: 272mm

BLADE HEIGHT: 32mm

THICKNESS AT HEEL: 3.1mm

These knives are hand-forged so there may be slight variations in measurements and finishes.
