Karaku AS Petty 120mm The Karaku line of knives is a new addition to the CKTG store. They are made by a young blacksmith called Michikuni Tokaji, who is part of the Zakuri collective from the Tosa region of Japan. They are a basic and simple knife that would be a perfect choice for someone just entering into the Japanese knife world.

What sets them apart from other entry level knives is that they are constructed from Aogami Super Steel. Japanese steels are commonly known by the color that the paper wrapped around the steel happens to be (white, blue, super blue). In this case, super blue steel, also known as Aogami Super Blue. AS steel is considered to be about the best high carbon mix for knife making. Carbon steels can deliver amazing levels of sharpness and Super Blue is regarded to be about as good as it can get. This makes the new Karaku line of knives a particularly interesting and affordable entry into the world of Japanese blades.

The 120mm petty is the most common size knife for most small cutting tasks around the kitchen. It can slice and dice along with the best of them while being particularly adept at small detail work like garnishes. The knife comes with a nice upgraded cherry wood handle.

    5  Great Handle, October 2, 2018
    Posted By: Edwin Powers - verified customer

    Blade better than expected. Could use some rounding/etc but it's straight and the grind's fine. Handle is beautiful and why you should buy this knife. Love it for garlic prep as blade is just tall enough for smashing.
