Kagayaki Aogami Super Custom Damascus Series knife is forged by Master Yamamoto, a talented and passionate forge-smith who is based in Takefu City, Fukui Prefecture.
Master Yamamoto's custom hammer forging process brings out the maximum potential of the Japan's premier quality Carbon Steel Aogami Super core blade steel (HRc. 63-64), which is clad with a beautiful Damascus laminate, which is made with alternating layers of Aogami Super steel and soft iron.
The high quality handles are made with red sandalwood and a black pakkawood ferrule, their comfortable octagonal shape allows a precision grip and provides authentic Japanese styling.
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.
