Masashi W2/S Nashiji Petty 120mm

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 Masashi Yamamoto - Masashi-san started his own workshop in 2013, after learning the family trade alongside his older brother Kazuomi at Yoshikane Hamono. Despite his young age, Masashi makes a beautifully polished and crazy sharp blade. The cool thing about him is that he works entirely by himself hand-making all of his blades and putting on the handles, the whole enchilada. Well, his coolness goes beyond his talent. He’s also a bit of a risk-taker, he likes to forge knives in his flip-flops as well as light cigarettes off glowing pieces of steel he’s working with. Bad. Ass.
