The Kato VG-10 Suminagashi line of knives has been created to fill the need for a stylish and functional utensil at a very competitive price. They are made from a core of VG-10 stainless steel which then receives outer layers of a softer stainless steel finished in a wonderful damascus (suminagashi) pattern. VG-10 is one of the most popular stainless steels in the world for the manufacturing of kitchen knives, and for good reason. It has very good edge retention and is very wear and corrosion resistant.

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. Petties are also perfect for preparing garnishes and other artistic cutting tasks.

We are very pleased to be able to offer these outstanding knives made by one of the true masters of Japanese cutlery, Hiroshi Kato. Kato-san has been practicing his art for over 50 years and during that time has built a reputation and name as one of the top craftsmen in his field. This lovely little knife reflects the dedication and skill of this master blade maker.
