The smallest knife in the Kajiwara damascus lineup is this eye catching 90mm petty knife. This is the knife that most resembles a western paring knife. The 90mm blade is just a shade longer than three and a half inches, the most common size knife for work ďin handĒ. No knife in this size category is going to be heavy per se, but this Aogami #2 damascus petty comes in at 51 grams or 1.8 ounces, and has a comparatively thick blade at 2.3 mm at the spine/heel. The damascus patterning is quite special on all of the Kajiwara blades, and even though itís a small package this knife packs a visual punch. This knife is ideally suited to peeling fruits and vegetables, and making small garnishes. If you are looking for a small, stiff blade, that will take and hold an outstanding edge, this is a great option, that possesses quality workmanship in spades. From the grind of the blade, to the very nice rosewood handle and ebony ferrule, the Kajiwara 90mm petty knife could well become one of your most used knives.

CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and itís evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. Itís nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
