Tadafusa Hocho Kobo HK-3 Petty 125mm

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 Tadafusa Hocho Kobo -Tadafusa knives are manufactured in the city of Sanjo, part of the Niigata prefecture. Not only known as a traditional centre for tool and knife forging, but also for the finest sake Japan has to offer. Great booze AND knives? Let’s go! The core of the blade is made from a hard SLD steel but is clad in softer stainless steel. The softer, stainless steel acts like a cushion and protects the harder steel.
These Tadafusa knives were developed by Fumie Shibata, a female industrial designer who sought out input from the female perspective. They feature a tapered tang for a great balance, the handle is made from semi-charcoaled chestnut wood which helps make it very sanitary and corrosion resistant, and no, they aren’t just for ladies.
