The Tsunehisa AS Sakura Petty 135mm featured here is made from the super steel knowns as AS, or Aogami Super. AS is one of our favorite steels for making knives, as it has the highest wear resistance and lowest toughness of the three Blue Paper steels. Edge holding is truly outstanding and it is also easy to sharpen.

AS contains the highest amount of carbon and chromium of the three alloys, which not only increases its hardness but also gives it a slight advantage over the others in terms of corrosion resistance. This is further enhanced with the addition of a stainless steel cladding. The cladding is somewhat softer or more ductile which protects the inner cutting core from shocks. This knife is given a tsuchime or hammered finish to both enhance its food release capabilities and fine aesthetics.

Petty knives are small, general purpose knives that are great at all kinds of tasks and excel when cutting things in hand or using it to do small cutting chores. They are easy to handle and very responsive cutters.

The sakura style handle is made from cherry wood and it complements the blade both in looks and balance.
