Haruyuki Yokuma Petty 135mm

About the Shape - This is the knife for smaller jobs that are done on a cutting board. Perfect for slicing shallots, cutting herbs, and boning smaller proteins. Additionally, Petty knives are an indispensable tool for those who feel uncomfortable wielding a larger chef knife.

About Haruyuki Kuma - This knife is no-nonsense, pure performance and bad-ass. Cooks and chefs love them because it is simple, sleek and blazing sharp. These are in fact, the knives that turned Kevin on to Japanese blades and birthed Knifewear. He bought a 180mm santoku in 1999 and it still hangs in the Calgary shop to this day!

SRS15 high-speed powder steel is mega hard steel capable of a Lightsaber-esque edge that will stick around for a long time. Combined with a very fine-grained structure it feels absolutely silky when cutting, so much so they have been called ‘clinical’. 

These knives are equipped with a Western style pakka wood handle, which is made from layers of wood and resin, compressed under immense pressure to produce and incredibly durable material. The net result is a handle that looks and feels like wood but is not affected by water.
