Our Yoshihiro Ice Hardened Petty Knife is forged with particular care to create a medium sized sturdy blade that can maneuver through both small and big tasks with finesse. Our petty knife is forged from a single piece of ice hardened high carbon Aus-8 stainless steel. Ice Hardening is a process where steel is quenched in temperatures below sub zero that help draw out the hardness of refined steel while infusing it with enough resiliency to perform consistently in the most exacting of conditions. This knife is also complimented with a traditional Japanese style handcrafted octagonal natural Shitan Rosewood. A protective wooden sheath called a "Saya" is included, which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use.
Japanese knives should always be sharpened and honed on premium quality Japanese water stones. A good quality Japanese water stone not only is the best surface to sharpen and maintain the blade of your knife, but it is also the best tool to preserve and take care of the high quality steel that it is made of.
