Makoto Kurosaki started working as an apprentice blacksmith under the guidance of famed blade maker Hiroshi Kato. He and his younger brother, Yu, worked alongside each other until Yu moved to his own shop in Echizen. They collaborate on various projects and Makoto still does work with Kato-san. We are really pleased to be working with this incredibly talented blacksmith.

The knives presented here are fashioned from SG2 stainless steel. SG2 is a powdered metallurgical steel similar to R-2 Powdered High Speed tool steel. R-2 is made by Kobelco steel company while SG2 is marketed and sold by Takefu steel company. Makers who work with R-2 steel in custom knives tend to forge it and use a different heat treatment process compared to stamped SG-2 blades. It is a good steel for kitchen knives, especially for those wanting an easy to care for item that will stay sharp over extended periods.

The 135mm petty is a great all-around kitchen knife for smaller products and tasks like garnish preparation. This knife has a super slim and thin blade that is ground in a 50/50 symmetrical manner. The lovely cherry wood handle gives this knife a great balance which is especially important with a knife of this type. Beautiful to look at and to use. We highly recommend the knives coming from this extremely well rounded blacksmith.

    5  Excellent petty!!!, July 15, 2018
    Posted By: Gavin

    Have been eyeing the Gihei Blue for a long time. Didn't pull the trigger because I was really hoping for a shorter petty and one made out of stainless (i'm a bit lazy when it comes to drying my pettys). This knife is exactly what I've been looking for. Lightweight, octagonal handle, tall enough that I haven't cut myself, and with a little touch up, very sharp.
