This 120mm Yu Kurosaki Petty comes with a stunning ambidextrous rosewood handle. It’s a Japanese style handle or Wa handle and is finished with a black pakkawood ferrule. The knife is comfortable to hold and supper light weight.
The balance point on the knife is right at the end of the ferrule and the blade feels nimble and easy to maneuver, as you would expect from a Petty of this size. The 120mm size has a versatile feel about it and is great for pinch grip or thumb press work.
Like all Kurosaki Knives the fit and finish on this blade is absolute perfection. The tip is super sharp, along with the rest of the blade. All other edges from the heal to the spine have been nicely ground and polished making for a comfortable ergonomic feel. The SG2 steel is a great quality steel and will hold a sharp edge for long time.
Master blacksmith Yu Kurosaki has done an amazing job forging this series of knives and the hammered (Tsuchimi) finish on the side of the blade not only looks great, but adds a practical value in terms of food release. From the moment you pick this knife you will not want to put it down.
We have many more Kurosaki knives and other Japanese Kitchen Knives.
Each blade is hand forged in SG2 steel, which allows for a high-level edge retention, super thin and light weight blade. The SG2 steel core in this series of knives is hardened to HRC 62+ and is clad in a softer stainless steel. The knives are highly polished and the fit and finish is sensational.
The side of the blade is decorated in a stylish and practical hammered pattern, which is unique to the Shizuku series of knives. The hammered finish, not only looks great, but helps with food release. Although the hammered pattern might appear rough it is highly polished and smooth. Completing the design is Kurosaki Sans signature chiseled kanji.
The Shizuku series of knives come in a variety of Japanese Wa handles. Including Cherrywood, Rosewood and Lacquerware (Kagerou). The handles are an octagonal ambidextrous shape and fit nicely in the hand.
A lot of passion, experience and care has gone into this top tier series from Kurosaki Knives. We highly recommend these knives and can assure you that they are a pleasure to use.
