We are really pleased to be able to offer these great knives to our customers again. Shiro Kamo knives are made by Master Blacksmith Kamo-san from Takefu Village in Japan. It's rare to find blacksmiths who excel with both grinding and forging but Kamo-san is one of them. He works with a very small crew of just two other workmen. While many shops farm their blades out to various workmen for the different stages of manufacture, Kamo-san keeps these operations in house and under his personal supervision.

The petty featured here is a wonderful blade that can double as a petty or paring knife. It is the perfect implement for making intricate garnishes. Constructed from R2 powdered stainless steel with a softer stainless steel cladding in a damascus style, the face etching is very well realized and reveals a lovely pattern from the cladding layers. This is a light blade but one that feels strong in the hand. Edge sharpness out of the box is excellent, as are the overall fit and finish.

The blade shape is fairly conventional for this type of knife, featuring a fine tip and slightly rounded belly. We are now supplying these knives with a beautiful custom octagonal handle. This is a really fun knife and one that will surprise you in its abilities to perform many tasks around the kitchen. Itís also a great and inexpensive way to experience R2 steel.
