This nice little petty is made by Yu Kurosaki, from Echizen Japan. The size is the smallest one he offers and it's good for paring and peeling. The convex grinds on his knives are excellent and transition into an incredibly thin grind behind the edge. The smith’s treatment of White #2 steel is top-flight. Edge retention is excellent, the steel is very easy to sharpen and can be taken to high levels of refinement. The iron Damascus cladding on these knives is fairly reactive and due care should be exercised when caring for the cladding and the core steel.
Edge Length: 75mm
Edge Steel: White #2 Carbon Steel
Cladding: Damascus Carbon Steel
Handle: Ho wood octagonal
Ferrule: Buffalo Horn
I just feel compelled to tell you that yours is the most ridiculously informative site of this nature I have ever come across.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
