CKTG is proud to announce that we are the first retailers outside Japan to start selling this new line of knives from a young blacksmith from Tosa. Mr. Kyohei Shindo was born in Hokkaido and graduated from Ryukyu University in Okinawa. His passion has always been to work with knives, so he set off on this journey just three short years ago. What he has achieved in this time is most impressive, so we jumped at the chance to feature his products in our store. He started with us by making smaller knives like petty and santoku styles but as he has gained experience and confidence, he will progress to making longer blades like gyutos.

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.
