With their beautiful mirror polish and unique Tsuchime (“Hammered eyes”) texture, Master Saji’s newly developed SRS-13 Custom Knives have an appearance unlike any of his other knives. These distinctive new knives are now available for ordering!
SRS-13 is a high quality Powdered High Speed Tool Steel that is produced by Sanyo Steel Company, and Master Saji has great confidence in its supreme cutting performance and edge retention. The attractive shiny SRS-13 blade core of these knives contrasts strongly against the textured outer cladding of soft stainless steel, and the hand-contoured White Corian Handle makes secured grip and extra durability. The knives are also fitted with stainless steel bolster for improved handle durability and blade balance. So, taken as a complete package, these knives are not only visually striking, but also highly practical and easy to care for.
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.

Please Note: In general, Japanese Kitchen Knives are designed for right hand use and their blades have a relatively strong convex grind on the right-hand side and relatively weak convex grind (almost straight) on the left-hand side. However, double bevel edge knives with a 50/50 grind can be used by both right-handed and left-handed people without any problems.
We believe that Japanese knives have the best quality and cutting performance in the world, and we hope that you will enjoy the fine craftsmanship and sharp edge of your new knife. With proper care, your new Japanese knife will be your faithful cooking partner for many years to come.
The Powdered High Speed Tool Steel blade core and stainless steel cladding of this kitchen knife are rust resistant for easy maintenance. However, the blade core may discolour or rust if the knife is kept in wet conditions for a long time.
Sharp out of the box (expect the core of the SRS-13 to hold a sharp edge for a long time). Wonderful Designed By Nomura qualitatively realized by master Takeshi Saji. The comfortable handle is made of milky white Corian. Interesting blade finish with Tsuchime texture. The form of a blade is universal for various types of works. I can't say it's bad, but it turned out to be unexpectedly heavier than my other knives of the same size. Thank you Takeshi Saji for a good tool, and Koki for the best service!
