Talented forge-smith Master Yamamoto, of Takefu City, recently finished these Aogami Super Knife. The blade core is made from Japan’s premium high carbon steel, Hitachi Aogami Super (“Blue Super Steel”) (HRc. 64), is sandwiched between two layers of corrosion-resistant, soft stainless steel. Because Aogami Super is somewhat corrosion-resistant, these knives should not require a lot of maintenance. However, please note that the exposed blade core can discolor or rust if it is exposed to acid, salt or water for a long time.
Each knife is fitted with a comfortable octagonal Cherry wood handle, which has a Black Pakkawood ferrule.
Now you can enjoy a knife that has not only a classic Japanese traditional-style finish, but also an Aogami Super blade that offers outstanding cutting performance and edge holding!
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.

However, double bevel edge knives with a 50/50 grind can be used by both right-handed and left-handed people without any problems.

For more than ten tears, I have ordered many knives from your web site. All are gifts for relatives and close friends. All, and I mean all of the kitchen knives and some folding knives from your other web site , they are all superb. Excellent design, quality construction, excellent steel and always excellent and speedy service from you. Years ago, I mainly bought VG-10 blades. But now I almost always prefer hand forged blades. Especially Aogami forged blades. You offer almost unlimited choices ! Everyone of the knives that I bought and gave away as gifts, the end user always gave praise that it is very sharp and well balanced and good looks.
I bought it for my mom, but she doesn’t use it often. I use it when I prepare food, and I think it’s a great knife. The only reason mom doesn’t like it is because it’s so different from western styled pairing knives. Make sure to clean it after every use!!
