Yahiko is one of the brands of kitchen knives made exclusively for us by some of the best blacksmiths in the Sanjo City area. We have been very fortunate to be able to plug into this wealth of talent to bring you a variety of different steels and construction techniques, all at very competitive prices.

This Yahiko Western Petty is made from the very popular stainless steel called VG-10. VG-10 is a cutlery-grade stainless steel produced in Japan. The name stands for V Gold 10, or sometimes V-Kin-10 (kin means "gold" in Japanese). It is a stainless steel with a high carbon content containing 1% carbon, 15% chromium, 1% molybdenum, 0.2% vanadium, 1.5% cobalt, and 0.5% manganese. All of these relatively small amounts of other metals give the VG-10 steel its most important properties, such as its ability to hold an edge coupled with great durability. It is one reason why the VG-10 label has been so popular with some of the biggest knife makers in Japan. The knife featured here is stamped from a VG-10 stainless steel san-mai sandwich, which has been heat treated to 60 Rockwell.

The petty featured here is on the small side for the genre, almost a paring knife in size and feel. The fit and finish of the blade is of a really high standard, especially taking into account the very reasonable price. This is a perfect knife for peeling the skin off of produce and for delicate and fine cutting work on garnishes. It would also be a great choice for fine filleting work and silver skin removal on small cuts of meat.

    I had misplaced my old Tojiro and got this as a replacement. Decent sharpness OOB. This is probably the nicest paring knife I've ever had for hand work. It's light and very nimble, the handle is slender and makes it easy to get the angle you need. For the price I am very pleased. And of course it was here in a flash!

    The knife I received is very nice. Sharp out of the box. Small and handy. The finish is very good. I like this knife, and highly recommend it. Jim
