Product information

Our Gohumanosuke Yoshihro Tsuchime series is top of the line and popular among home and pro chefs. The VG-10 core is clad between 11 layers of nickel, 6 layers of SUS420 and 5 layers of J1 stainless steel, creating the a 45 layer Damascus, then hand hammered to create the tsuchime finish which helps release food that might stick to the blade. 

A petty knife is a basic utility knife slightly larger than a pairing knife. Typically petty and utility knives are used on a cutting board as opposed to a paring knife which does better when operated in your hand. They are great for intricate, delicate and light work.
