Our handmade Yoshihiro Blue High Carbon Steel #1 Masashi Kurouchi Series Petty Utility Knife are at the top of its class in performance. Exemplifying the most intricate techniques of forging, layering, and hammering, this black forged knife, or Kurouchi in Japanese, is a traditional method of crafting high carbon knives. This unique style of forging offers an unpolished rustic finish. With a hardness on the Rockwell scale of 64, the inner core of Blue High Carbon Steel #1 is prized for its high edge retention. The Masashi Kurouchi Series has a higher level of finishing and polish than our standard Yoshihiro Kurouchi knives.

Our Yoshihiro Kurouchi Petty Knife is forged with particular care to create a medium sized sturdy blade that can maneuver through both small and big jobs with finesse. A razor sharp Petty knife can intricately carve and style vegetables and fruits for beautiful presentations and garnishes, performing just as well for bigger jobs such as preparing meals. Even the simplest of tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional.
