This hand made, hammer forged petty will do sterling work as a regular petty for those looking for some extra board clearance.
Blue #1 Steel used by Murata-san is a high carbon steel and as such requires some care. However when coupled to the “black hammer” kurouchi finish, much of that maintenance is mitigated. A lovely octagonal wa handle completes the package.
High performance and great edge retention are hallmarks of Murata knives and this fun and useful implement is a perfect example of the breed.
