Gikei Blue #2 Tall Petty 165mm

The Gihei Blue #2 Tall Petty is a true all-rounder of a knife. It is long enough to take on most ingredients while being short enough for the smaller cutting tasks around the kitchen. The knife is rather like a cross between a small gyuto and a short santoku.

Atsushi Hosokawa and his son make this line of knives using Hitachi Blue #2 steel which is hardened to 62-63 HRC. The exceptional grinds on these knives are a symmetrical 50/50 which is perfect for left and right handed users. The inner core of Aogami #2 is clad with SUS 405 stainless steel which helps to protect and strengthen the knife. The cladding is given a great looking pear skin (nashiji) finish above the primary bevel. Overall fit and finish is exceptional given the knifeís reasonable price point.

Care must still be taken with the exposed Blue #2 edge as it will corrode if left wet or dirty.

It comes with a nice magnolia oval handle and buffalo horn ferrule. This is a really fine handmade, hammer forged knife made using traditional techniques. The outstanding blades coming out of this small father and son blacksmith shop should receive your consideration. We like them a lot!
