This Tojiro Shirogami ITK 150mm Petty is forged specially for Chefknivestogo, and represents one of the best quality to price ratios on the site. The core of this little knife is made of Shirogami carbon steel, also known as White #2 steel. The darker kurouchi cladding over the top of the knife is also a carbon steel, which has a great black matte finish that provides good grip. Being a completely carbon reactive blade, this knife will take on a patina of blues, greys and browns. Care is needed to ensure this blade is dry after use, as carbon steel can rust - indicated by red patches on your blade where the steel was left exposed to moisture. This hand-hammered knife is fairly thick at 3mm on the spine, and thins nicely toward the tip. The blade itself has a great profile on it and a nice tip, which makes this petty a very good performing knife. This is also a taller petty at about 33mm high, great for a pinch grip, and leaving lots of room for larger knuckles between the handle and your cutting board. The handle is a D-shaped Ho wood finished with a plastic ferrule, and feels nice in the hand. For the price, you won't find much better for a great carbon reactive petty in this size.
Blade length: 150mm
Total length: 262mm
Spine thickness at base: 2.82mm
Blade height: 34.46mm
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.
