Kajiwara Kurouchi | 150mm Petty Knife (Aogami)

Hand-crafted in Tosa Japan, Kajiwara Kurouchi are a high performance carbon steel knife with a rustic aesthetic. The grind is thicker than other knives of this ilk, making it better at resisting chips and more suitable for harder work in the kitchen. Aogami (Blue) steel rusts slower than it's White equivalent, making it a sound starting knife into the world of carbon steel.


The fit and finish of these knives is a little lower than others but the quenching and performance more than makes up for it.

Japanese Kitchen Knife | Petty & Paring Knives

The Petty Knife is a smaller Japanese utility knife generally used for precision knife work and fine slicing. 
Petty knives are narrow but can range quite widely in length, from smaller profiles that can be used as paring knives, through to longer models that verge on Sujihiki (Japanese slicing knives). Whatever size you choose, the petty knife is extremely useful in the kitchen, the perfect partner to your Gyuto.
