Masakage Kumo Petty 150mm. This beautiful 150mm petty is from the Kumo line of knives that is hand forged by master craftsman Katsushige Anryu. With well over 50 years as a dedicated traditional black smith Anryu-san has many awards and achievements to personify his excellence.
The Damascus VG-10 steel this knife is crafted from is what gives this series its name; Kumo, meaning Cloud. The pattern is mesmerizing and beautifully done... by hand! VG-10 is a full stainless steel that is popular among knife makers the world over. The steel is very wear resistant and will hold an edge a very long time. Being that it's stainless corrosion and rust resistance is very high. The heat treat on the Kumo series is in the neighborhood of 61-62 HRC.
The octagonal Rosewood handle is finished with a black Pakka wood ferrule. As with all offerings from the Masakage line of knives; fit and finish is far above average.
