This product is currently sold out.
A lovely thin Petty, great for prep.
SHAPE: Petty. One of the smallest knives in the arsenal good for well, small things.
STEEL: Aogami (blue paper) super steel. This is very similar to white paper steel but with tungsten and chromium added to it which helps with edge retention and slows down rusting. The super part indicates the highest amount of carbon steel at up to 1.5% out of the blue series steels. This has then been hardened to around 62 rockwell making it very hard and capable of retaining an edge for a very long time. The blue steel core has then been wrapped in stainless steel making maintenance easy.
HANDLE: Octagonal magnolia handles with buffalo horn ferrule.
LENGTH: 135mm in length
MAKER: Yamawaki - Sakai City, Japan
BEST FOR: Those wanting one of the best cutting steels on the planet at an acceptable price.
