Yoshimi Kato has taken the reins of the business that his father-in-law, Hiroshi started and is making some of the best blades coming out of Echizen today.

The Kato Suminagashi knives are constructed from a core of VG-10 stainless steel to which is added a layer of a softer stainless steel finished in a wonderful damascus (suminagashi) pattern. VG-10 steel is a designation used for a particular type of stainless steel. VG-10 steel is a Japanese made alloy that has found particular favor in the cutlery industry.

Kato-san has crafted these knives to have both wonderful cutting characteristics as well as stunning looks. That he has managed to do so at such an affordable price is quite amazing.

The 120mm petty is a great all-around kitchen knife for smaller products and smaller tasks like garnish preparation. It has a very slim blade that is ground in a symmetrical manner. Overall balance is really good which is important with a blade of this type. VG-10 holds a good edge and is characteristically quite easy maintain and care for.

This petty comes with a really lovely western-style handle in a rosewood color. The fit and finish of the knife are as good as its looks.
