The Tanaka Sekiso 135mm petty knife is the smallest in Tanakaís Damascus line, and its blade profile is that of a miniature gyuto. With a core steel of Aogami #2 (also known as blue paper #2), and a ductile iron cladding, this knife is easier on sharpening stones than a mono steel blade, and will patina differently on the two different materials. These knives are very well ground, as the blades are incredibly thin, yet stiff, and with a very nice convex. Tanaka knives tend to come out of the box with a very sharp edge, and the hand carved kanji have an almost graffiti like quality about them. Being so thin, the knife is also extremely lightweight, and goes through veggies and meats with very little muss or fuss.

The handles on the Sekiso line are ho wood and D-shaped for right-handed users (most lefties have no issues with the handle shape) and have a buffalo horn ferrule. The handles are very lightweight, and lend to the knifeís overall svelte feel in hand. These knives are 100% reactive so the iron cladding and the carbon steel core should be washed and dried after each use.

Be sure to watch Steveís video if you are interested in any of the Sekiso knives.
