Shiro Kamo knives are made by Master Blacksmith Kamo-san from Takefu Village in Japan. It's rare to find blacksmiths who excel with both grinding and forging, but Kamo-san is one of them. He works with a very small crew of just two other workmen. While many shops farm their blades out to various workmen for the different stages of manufacture, Kamo-san keeps these operations in-house and under his personal supervision.

The small petty featured here is a wonderful blade that can double as a petty or paring knife. It is the perfect implement for making intricate garnishes. It is constructed from R2 powdered stainless steel with a softer stainless steel cladding in a damascus style. The face etching is well done and reveals a lovely pattern from the cladding layers. This is a light blade but one that feels strong in the hand. Edge sharpness out of the box is excellent as is the overall fit and finish.

The blade shape is fairly conventional for this type of knife, featuring a fine tip and slightly rounded belly. We are now supplying these knives with an octagonal rosewood handle instead of the ho wood type shown here. This is a really fun knife and one that will surprise you in its abilities to perform many tasks around the kitchen. Itís also a great and inexpensive way to experience R2 steel.

    I try to refrain from recommending items at the site, but IMO, this knife must be recognized. I was hesitant to make the purchase due to the knife's height, but she has asserted herself as my favorite ever paring knife. Edge retention that lasts beyond a parer's duty, and an ergonomic that, surprisingly, fits my oven-mitt hands perfectly. Two 240 gyutos, a 150 petty, and said 90 paring has left me with great respect for Kamo-San's offerings.
