Our Gohumanosuke Yoshihiro AUS-8A Petty knife covers tasks from fine garnishing to utility purposes with ease and agility. This AUS-8A stainless steel series is heat treated and tempered which easily achieves a razor sharp edge that holds for an extended period of time. Yoshihiro blade smiths add Molybdenum for hardness, toughness, corrosion resistance and a high tensile strength. Vanadium is added for strength, toughness and heat resistance. Moreover, Vanadium promotes a desired fine grain structure which allows for even wear resistance. These knives are single piece forged with a full tang and bolster. The western style black Pakkawood handle is comfortable, durable, tough and heat resistant.
