Masakage Yuki Petty (office knife), 80 mm
Masakage Yuki Petty 8cm,
This Japanese paring knife has a core of Japanese Shirogami #2 White carbon steel. This double-sided sharpened knife has a Nashiji pattern which gives the knife a snow-like appearance, hence the name Yuki which means snow in Japanese. Completely hand-forged by master blacksmith Hiroshi Kato-san, this knife is one of a kind. The blade is very thin and manually sharpened and has no thickenings, which makes sharpening very easy.
