Yu Kurosaki Petty 120mm - Shizuku EditionKurosaki Knives
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 heel 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.
