A new addition to the Tojiro line of VG10 hammered knives is this functional 130mm petty. The short and stout blade can get into all sorts of tight spaces, like cutting around bones, while it is also able to tackle the finest and most intricate garnish preparations.
The blade is constructed from VG10 and a san mai sandwich of a soft stainless steel. VG10 is one of the most popular stainless steels used in the making of Japanese knives. It is highly regarded for it good edge retention, toughness, and superior stain resistance. It also gets really sharp. The soft stainless cladding is treated to a cool looking kurouchi hammered finish which adds character and a certain amount of extra food release.
This basic knife comes with a simple handle that is easy to hold and control for extra security when performing in-hand work. At the price, this little cutter can be used in many places where one would not necessarily take a more expensive blade.
Great knife for detail work. Crazy sharp OOTB. I bought 1 for the wife too, and it's her go-to knife for splitting limes, grapes (for the toddler), and other miscellaneous tasks. Sharpening isn't difficult since it's not a long blade.
I just feel compelled to tell you that yours is the most ridiculously informative site of this nature I have ever come across.
