About the shape - This is the knife for smaller jobs that are done in your hand. Think about coring strawberries, cutting fruits in hand, and peeling potatoes. Additionally, Petty knives are an indispensable tool for those who feel uncomfortable wielding a larger chef knife.
About Masakage Yuki - This line has been named Yuki (snow) due to the frosty Nashiji finish, paired with the white magnolia handle. The splash of red pakka gives it a feeling of drama, like the final scene of Kill Bill: Volume 1.
Handmade with a hard Shirogami (white) carbon steel and clad in a softer stainless steel, the Yukis are a customer favourite. You get the superior edge retention, easy sharpening and a silky smooth cut of a carbon-steel blade, with only minor maintenance required on the edge of the knife. It’s a genius way to make a knife. Keep the edge dry and you'll be singing.
