Kanehide Bessaku is a well-known knife company operating in the heart of Seki City, home of some of the best known blade makers in the world. Kanehide utillizes Hitachi Gin5 steel in the making of this petty. The steel is used a lot in the manufacture of razor blades. The alloy is treated to a cryogenic process that not only enhances the hardness but also the wear resistance of the knife and edge. Through this process, Kanehide is able to increase the hardness of the PS60 to HRC 60-61. The knife is a mono steel construction, so there is no cladding or other hybrid treatments.

Petty knives are small utility knives of Japanese design. They can vary significantly in both profile and size, going from 75mm to 210mm. They are very similar to the common western paring or utility knife and are adept at many small and detailed cutting tasks. They also excel at preparing garnishes and other artistic endeavors. In the case of this petty, we have a blade that is of average length but with a very short blade height. It is therefore very light and nimble and able to get into places a taller blade would not.

We really like the blades coming out of the Kanehide shop and this fine item is a great example of the craftsmanship and value of these attractive and easy to use knives.

4  Good blade, oversized handle, December 12, 2017
Posted By: David

Knife arrived well packed & blade was sharp out of box but formed a wire edge really fast. Easily fixed with 10 minutes on shapton glass stones.

The handle was the only let down, in that it was really oversize and thick for the size of the knife, funnily, it felt a little short.

I got the knife through a friend who bought a PS60 210 wa gyuto.
