The Takayuki Homura Blue #2 Petty is a fascinating and rather unique knife that shares its profile with a small range of gyutos that have been forged by Itsuo Doi. These knives have a very sleek and simple beauty that features a graceful curved blade edge and a spine that is straight all the way to the tip.

Itsuo Doi is one of our favorite blacksmiths. His reputation has risen to the point that he is considered one of the true greats working in Sakai. His knives are very recognizable, rather like that of his illustrious father. But these Homura creations have a new and very alluring look that is less traditional. Doi-san makes the blade from Aogami #2 steel. Favored by many, it is one of the harder steels to forge. But when done correctly, Aogami #2 will stand up to virtually any other steel in terms of edge retention, wear resistance, and toughness. The hagane is clad with a soft iron for added strength and resilience. The jigane is finished with a beautiful satin luster, and the edge steel is polished to a high shine.

A simple and elegant octagonal handle is made from yew wood with a fine buffalo horn ferrule. The overall fit and finish of the handle and blade is of the highest order.
