The Kamo VG10 Suminagashi Petty 90mm is made from a core of VG10 stainless steel which then receives outer layers of softer stainless steel finished in a wonderful Damascus (suminagashi) pattern. VG10 is one of the most popular stainless steel 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.

The design element that sets this knife apart is the unusual handle construction and aesthetic. Using a multi-layer laminate of oak reduces the chances of shrinkage and distortion while comfortable in hand and well balanced overall. It is a light but rigid knife-to-handle interface which is particularly important for a small knife that might be used for in-hand cutting.

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. This light and nimble knife is well designed, aesthetically original, and very well constructed from prime materials.
