Oul Sakai Shiroichi Stainless Petty 150mm

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 Oul Sakai Shiroichi - Oul Sakai sources blades from the best knife makers in Sakai, and has them sharpened by their resident master-sharpener, Maruyama-san. Oul Sakai was the first maker in Sakai to bring carbon steel clad with stainless steel to Yoshikazu Tanaka-san, and now Tanaka-san loves it! He now forges with this steel for several different companies.

These knives are extra special, crafted from Shirogami #1 with stainless cladding making them super rare in Sakai. This means insane sharpness and performance from the core steel, but less maintenance than a regular carbon steel knife. Sakai Oul was the first maker in Sakai to make knives this way, and Yoshikazu Tanaka is the blacksmith behind this masterpiece.
