The Yoshimitsu brothers work in a small shop located just outside the city of Nagasaki. The city is in the Nagasaki Prefecture, on the west coast of Japan's Kyushu Island. The area is known for volcanoes, forested offshore islands, and hot-spring spas.

We have always enjoyed working with the five brothers as they produce some of our more popularly priced knives. One such knife is the Blue #2 Petty 165mm. The blade is made from a core of Hitachi Blue Paper #2 steel. Blue Steel #2 has the same carbon content as White #2, with the additional elements Chromium and Tungsten. With these additional ingredients, Blue Steel #2 blades can potentially have better edge retention and durability. The inner core is covered with a stainless steel to increase strength and aid with ease of maintenance. The bead blasted lower blade path offers a nice contrast to the polished upper face and edge.

The Yoshimitsu Blue #2 Petty 165mm is a great mid-length knife that can be applied to many cutting tasks around the kitchen, whether they are slicing, dicing, or more specialized work like garnish preparations. And at its affordable price, it could prove to be the gateway you have been seeking into the fascinating world of Japanese knives.
