The Reigetsu line from Tojiro was formerly called Fuji Narihira. These are very popular, good bang-for-the-buck knives made with Molybdenum Vanadium blended steel. The handles are made with durable POM material that won't crack or shrink. All finishing work and inspections occur in the Sanjo City factory of Tojiro. The initial grinding and heat treatment are done in China. This is a great option for line cooks!
For $25 I couldn't ask for more. 4116 steel is likely around 56 HRC so it doesn't hold an edge super well, but it's also a petty so it doesn't get used as often (in my kitchen anyway). I give it a toothy edge for slicing tomatoes and other thick-skinned items.

Used they as a cheaper alternative to the Tojiro DP Steak knives. I have alot of the Tojiro DP bigger knives and they fit perfectly with them. Fit and finish is good. they're sharp out of the box and i will see how long it takes before they need a resharpen, but they look and feel very good.
I knew I wanted a petty, but I didn't know which one. I had a knife I really, really hated that I got rid of last year. This little guy is sharp and precise. It's a good multi-use petty at a great price. I mainly use it for produce and other smaller jobs. If you know exactly what type of petty you want, then I would contact CKTG. I will probably do that in the future if I decide to upgrade. Right now, this is what I need.
