Mr. Kyoshi Shindo produces these excellent knives and they're impressive in every way.

This 135mm petty is a perfect length for the style of blade. It is long enough for board work yet compact enough for safe in-hand operations. The blades are made using SRK8 steel, which is a Hitachi-made alloy somewhat similar to Hitachi Shirogami #2, but with a little chrome and nickel added for extra toughness. The steel is heat-treated to HRC 63+, which is a number we like for this kind of alloy. It should, therefore, hold a good edge and be easy to sharpen.

A rather unusual and visually pleasing handle is made from burnt oak wood, which is given an urushi (lacquer) finish—impressive features for a knife in this price range.
