A note about measurements: Knife edge length is shorter than stated, as Sakai knives are measured from the front of the handle to the tip. Additionally, some knives feature a small 'machi' gap between the handle and blade.
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 Sakai Kikumori - Sakai Kikumori is a wholesaler in Sakai, sort of like Sakai Takayuki and Konosuke. They work with several blacksmiths and sharpeners including Shiraki Hamono, Yoshikazu Tanaka and Morihiro.
These knives are made by a blacksmith on the island of Kyushu whose identity is not known. When Kawamura-san from Sakai Kikumori travelled all around Kyushu to find new or not-so-well-known blacksmiths, he found this blacksmith who makes fantastic blades that have a very nice rustic nashiji finish.
