Product information

SK-4 high-carbon steel, favored by chefs globally, is renowned for its lightness, ease of sharpening, and the ability to attain a keen edge, thanks to its fine grain structure. Gohumanosuke's skilled blade-smiths employ Sakai's traditional quenching techniques and meticulous sharpening to craft a blade with enduring sharpness. Tough and sharp, SK-4 high-carbon steel is a stalwart in the knife industry, known for maintaining a super sharp edge and being easily sharpened at home.

The petty knife, a fundamental utility tool slightly larger than a paring knife, finds its place on cutting boards for intricate and delicate tasks. Unlike paring knives, which excel in hand-operated tasks, petty and utility knives are perfect for detailed and lightweight work. The pakkawood handle adds a touch of comfort, durability, toughness, and heat resistance to this versatile knife.
