The Kanehide TK line of kitchen knives represents about the best value we currently offer in our store. After having sold these knives for the past four years, our opinion of them has not lessened at all. There are several reasons for this. Number one is the steel. The knife is made with a very popular semi stainless steel using a mono steel construction. It is the same steel as can be found in the Kikuichi TKC line of knives, but at a hefty reduction in price. The alloy is hardened to 61 Rockwell. The steel combines several attributes of a stainless steel (less prone to corrosion and thus less maintenance) with the edge holding and ease of sharpening associated with full carbon blades.
The second reason is the overall fit and finish. We are still amazed at the high level of construction and finish of both blade and handle that is offered at this budget price.
Lastly, the grinds and profiles are really sterling work. You could easily pay over twice as much for a similar knife from other makers!
If you are looking for a small, easy to use and maintain petty that comes with a great edge that is easy to sharpen, you have found it in the Kanehide TK Petty 120mm!
Weight: 2.7 ounces
