Miki M303 Kigami Petty (office knife), 150 mm

This Japanese office knife is forged from Japanese Kigami carbon steel (non-stainless) with riveted bolster. This double-sided sharpened knife is hand-forged by Miki Hamono's forge. The blade is very thin and manually sharpened and has no thickening, which makes grinding very easy.
