This offering from Tsutomu Kajiwara comes in at just over 120mm (lengths vary, these are not stamped blank knives) and marks the first blade in the Kajiwara damascus lineup that approaches more of a utility blade length, and height. The rosewood wa handle with ebony ferrule are of excellent quality with tight joints, and a dark finish to complement the dark grey steel. This knife works well on the cutting board for mincing garlic and shallots, or taking your julienne to a brunoise. Itís fairly thick blade, and weight make this very handsome knife a little bruiser for finer prep work. The Aogami #2 steel at a Rockwell hardness of 62 will take a very nice edge, and hold on to it very well. As is the case with all Kajiwara damascus knives, this is a 100% carbon steel blade, so you will want to wipe it dry every time you are going to set it down to switch to another knife. The tradeoff for that extra bit of care is a knife that performs extremely well, and one that could quickly become one of the knives you reach for every time you pull an ingredient out of the fridge, it is a perfect complement to your Gyuto.

    Received within 36 hours of order, as I have experienced previously (means my aogami super laser should be here tomorrow...) this little knife is going to be an absolute workhorse. Sharp ootb, nice tall blade, no fear of smashing garlic here. Tip is fine enough for serious mincing, great continuous curve on the blade for pull cutting, and chopping, beautiful with the darker handle and blade steel. Kanji looks great in the light, and balance is right at the blade end of the choil. The blade is STOUT, this 120mm petty feels twice as heavy as my 150mm petty, its even heavier than my 6.5 Shun Premier utility. The point on the blade is extremely sharp and distal taper is continuous throughout the blade. The convex grind is well pronounced, and the knife is thick enough that it will wedge in onions. That is a good thing for a working knife. It's very hard to find such a heavy blade in such a short knife. Crush to peel, but still sharp and short enough to provide great precision when mincing. Awesome knife. Great looking, and incredibly functional. The german parer it is going to replace has seen little use in the last few years, but I can already tell this thing is going to be a favorite.

    Fast service from Mark and crew as always. This is my first blue paper #2 knife and it takes an edge VERY easily, haven't had it long enough to comment on edge durability, but running it on the balsa and horse butt should keep me off the stones for a little while. Must say that this knife was pretty dull out of the box and the chorl was rough, both easily remedied. Forced the patina, which turned out pretty cool. This knife is very handy for small stuff, it does wedge in onions. I'm gonna need a 12 step program to cure me of my CKTG habit.
