This 120mm Ko Bocho, Japanese for “little knife,” is shaped like a mini santoku, and is forged from Aogami #2 or blue paper #2 steel, very highly regarded for its ability to take and hold a steep and refined edge. This is a knife that when used as a supplement to your gyuto creates a very dynamic team capable of just about any food prep you can throw their way. This blade is really quite thick for a knife of this size, and the shape makes it perfect for chopping garlic, shallots, scallions, chocolate, nuts, and tougher dried items like sun dried tomatoes or ancho chiles.

The blade has a kurouchi finish created during heat treating, and helps prevent rust. With a proper edge, this knife also works very well for breaking down poultry, as you would use a honesuki. The tall height of the blade and unique complex grind are perfect for working on the cutting board. Top it off with a rosewood handle and ebony ferrule, and you have a fantastic rustic looking utility blade that you will reach for very often, and one that you’ll always consider a great value.
