CKTG Petty Saya 150mm
Yoshimi Kato is the son of famed blacksmith Hiroshi Kato. He worked for his father for many years before taking over the family business a few years ago. Like his father, he continues to make knives for several leading brands including Masakage and Kanehiro working from the Takefu Knife Village cooperative.

The Kato Nashiji line of blades bears the proud name of his family and lives up to the reputation that they deservedly have for making great handmade kitchen cutlery. They are constructed using a san-mai combination of VG-10 and a stainless damascus outer cladding. The VG-10 hagane is hardened to 61 HRC and, together with the stainless jigane, makes for a knife with very rugged characteristics which is also very easy to care for.

This is a classically sized and styled petty, with a blade length of about 146mm and a height at the heel of almost 30mm. It features a really nicely radiused choil and a flat cutting edge that sweeps to the fine tip almost 3/4 of the way along the blade. The blade is beautifully presented with the multi-layer damascus showing on the lower road and transforming into the upper portion which features a nashiji finish and some lovely hand engraved kanji.

Like all of the knives in this collection, the Kato Nashiji Suminagashi Petty 150mm represents a fine combination of artisanal quality and great looks at a very competitive price.

      Replacement petty, April 29, 2019
    Posted By: David

    Needs to replace a carbon steel petty with worn kurouchi for use with citrus. This was an excellent choice. The finish with kanji and damascus, curved choil and rounded edges is an example of this craftsman's attention to detail. Got the longer blade for slicing smaller items that do not need a taller blade. Can use in hand. Very satisfied, very good price point.
