This Office knife, also called Petty knife, is a typical Japanese cooking tool used on a daily basis for all smaller, precise cutting tasks in the kitchen: peeling, pitting fruit, chopping herbs, creating garnishes. Once you start using it, you'll always want it within reach.
The blade is made of an incredibly resilient R2 powdered stainless steel. The hammered blade finish - while more economical than the damas finish - provides an unique texture for each knife. It is polished to prevent food from lingering on the blade. As with many japanese knives knives, the heel of the blade is rounded to allow a more comfortable use of the pinch grip.
This beautiful knife is forged by the young Master Kurosaki-san. Before becoming an independent artisan, Yu Kurosaki worked for 13 years with Master Blacksmith Kato of Masakage fame. Kurosaki-san is devoted to creating knives that are both practical and beautiful.
