When people select own knife, cutting performance and edge retention are always one of the priority list. Moreover, it will be great if the knife does not require much additional care and attention in terms of daily maintenance,
This “Deep Impact” knife matches aforementioned preferences very well.
Its blade is made of Japan’s premium high carbon steel, Aogami Super (“Blue Super Steel”), which is sandwiched between two layers of soft stainless steel and then heat treated to HRc. 64-65.
The handle is made from black paper Micarta, which is a very durable and stable material. It is water-resistant, and will not shrink or crack in the same way that wood does.
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.
I didn't think I would find myself using this knife as often as I dot just feels right in my hand.
excellent, my second purchase super fast shipping even during the holidays and covid, the super blue will get a razor edge, these are great knives for the price,
This is the third Jck knife I bought. I like them very much. these knives are very useful. I'll really recommend my friends
Cutting performance was phenomenal as always with this blade construction & steel. I'm a huge fan of Aogami Super Blue...takes a razor edge & holds it well, resharpening is easy when needed. Great value for the $...highly recommend. Only negative for me is the small handle size; wife loves it but a bit small for my big hands.
I am pleased to find Aogami Super with a good grind for this price. However I have to advise to not expect a high or flawless level of finish of the handle and bolster or a even 50/50 edge with a good sharpness out of the box. After edge reprofiling and sharpening the knife I think lives up to its description completely, which i believe really highlights what the deep impact knives are all about. I am looking forward to using this knife for many years to come.
