Elegant, characterful, and handy, this petty is a great combination of function and art. This 130mm petty knife is made by third generation blacksmith Takeshi Saji in the storied knife making region of Takefu Village. The knife has striking lines defined by the knifes profile and the contrast between its polished flats and frosted blade road. The aesthetic is completed by an attractive and well-crafted octagonal rosewood handle with black pakka wood ferrule. The construction features Ginsan stainless steel wrapped in a soft stainless cladding, which makes upkeep easy. The Ginsan core is hardened to 61 HRC for a great combination of acute edge taking and durable edge holding. As these are hand produced pieces, these knives may vary dimensionally from the posted specifications.
