We are really impressed with the price-performance ratio of these TK knives from Kanehide. We asked them to make up some blades using their proprietary semi-stainless steel, and the results surprised us. These are great blades at a really great price.

TK steel is like a bit of stainless and a bit of carbon. It takes and holds a nice edge while being easy to resharpen. Meanwhile it is semi-stainless, so the normal maintenance routine associated with high-carbon blades is reduced quite substantially. It is a mono steel construction and the steel is hardened to 61 HRC. This knife has half the chromium of a fully stainless knife, so it will be reactive and form a patina. Wash and towel dry after each use, and use Bar Keepers Friend if desired.

These knives have fairly thin spines with a nice taper to the well-ground tip. The blade height is about average for a knife this size. Itís a good looker with a well-made machine finish on the blade face. The handle and bolster are very well executed. The medium-sized handle is made from black pakka wood and it has a really comfortable feel. The blade shape lends itself to a variety of tasks including fine slicing and intricate work such as garnish preparation.

The Kanehide TK Petty 150mm is a good choice for a new Japanese knife user or a line cook wanting a well-made kitchen tool at a great price.

    I got a TK 150 mm some time ago.also a DP..I can get that TK VERY sharp. The TK is the best knife I have ever used for fillet of boneless, skinless chicken breast I have ever used. It's a razor.

    May be not perfect but darn near.
    Pretty sharp OOB and with 6K finish, sharpness almost rivals Taketa Aogami Nakiri.
    Sharp enough to slide through fresh carrot instead of sort of splitting it.
    Blade is somewhat delicate which is understandable at this sharpness. While cutting a hard nectarine, the seed in the core was scraped with somewhat moderate pressure. Upon close inspection with magnifying glass on the blade, I noticed there were couple of micro dents (or bends) where the blade scraped the seed. Which was corrected easily with a few run on 1k/6k stone. If it was Aogami steel, like Takeda Nakiri, it would been a chip which would been little more time consuming to fix. Great utility knife and I prefer this over Shun premiere utility knife I ended up returning. Love it!!!

    This knife is just the right size for peeling melons, chopping onions, slicing cucumber, and filleting fish. It is the same length as my Victronex filet knife, and is now replacing it. It retains a super sharp edge and the thin blade lets me turn like a figure skater on ice. I find I'm using this more than any other knife in my arsenal.
