Takeshi Saji Aogami Super Custom Series Petty (135mm and 150mm, 2 Sizes, Irownwood Handle)

Availability: Normally ships the same day

The “Aogami Super Black Forged Knife” has a blade core of Aogami Super that is sandwiched between two layers of corrosion-resistant soft stainless steel. The laminated blade is decorated with a Tsuchime (“Hammered pattern”) texture and a traditional Japanese Kurouchi (“Literally, “Black-forged”) finish that ads a touch of rustic style. This knife is available with Ironwood’ handle scales that have a rich warm color and dramatic figuring.

The handle is carefully contoured by hand to ensure that it can be gripped comfortably and are fitted with a stainless steel bolster for improved durability and blade balance.

A mainstay of professional Western kitchens, the Petty knife is a small general-purpose knife used for peeling, shaping, and slicing fruits and vegetables, chopping herbs, and making garnishes. The compact size and relatively narrow blade of the Petty knife mean that it is very nimble and controllable, thus it is ideal for making precise cuts.

This knife comes with 50/50 double bevel edge geometry for both right and left handed use.

For your information, Japanese Kitchen knives are generally designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened  50/50 without problems.  

We believe the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times.


This is the Carbon steel blade kitchen knife that can get rust and discolor easily, and requires extra care and attention to prevent rust.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes. Please apply Tsubaki oil on the blade and keep it in dry place.
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab.
  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

    Very handy and beautiful knife

    I like this knife. Its shape and design. I get aesthetic pleasure from using it. It's very handy, sits perfectly in my hand and cutting edges are smooth. It's also very good balanced and easy to work with. The only drawback is that the blade oxidizes very quickly. It is worth leaving it wet after washing for half an hour and rust spots appear on the blade. Therefore, I have to wash and dry it immediately after use.

    I was surprised but very happy this knife arrived in only two days! This is my first Japanese knife, and although I knew what I was looking for (mostly), staring at websites and making a choice without holding it first made me really nervous. It more than lives up to what I was hoping. I live alone and just wanted a small knife for minor prep work. It feels great in my hand. The blade length is perfect for what I wanted, and the sharpness is everything I'd read about with Japanese knives. It's also more beautiful than the pictures show. I never write reviews, but I'm so thrilled with knife and with the customer service, I just had to say something. Now off to plan my next meal.....
