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 Kuroshu -Masashi-san makes a beautifully polished and crazy sharp blade, working entirely by himself hand-forging, sharpening, and putting on the handles. He’s also a bit of a risk taker, forging knives in his flip-flops and lighting cigarettes off white-hot knife steel. Bad. Ass. The ultra-sexy kuroshu series is everything a knife should be. Razor sharp, super easy to care for, and it cuts like a dream! The damascus-clad SLD stainless steel is rugged and reliable, not to mention easy to care for!
