The Tetsujin kasumi aogami #2 petty knife 165mm is handcrafted by Toru Tamura and sharpened by Naohito Myojin. It features a core of aogami#2 steel, acclaimed for its sharpness and lasting edge retention. The kasumi finish, beautifully executed by Myojin, offers a striking contrast between the matte iron cladding and the mirror-polished core steel, highlighting the knife's refined craftsmanship.

At 165mm, this petty knife is designed for those who prefer a slightly longer blade than the typical petty knife. It is ideal for both home cooks and professional chefs, offering enhanced control for precise tasks such as peeling, slicing, and intricate food preparation. The additional length affords more versatility, making it an excellent choice for a range of kitchen tasks.

Care Guide
  • Use a whetstone to maintain sharpness. Avoid electric sharpeners and pull-through sharpeners, as they are not suitable for Japanese kitchen knives. Honing rods, typically used for western-style knives, may potentially damage the edge.
  • Choose a wooden or rubber cutting board instead of bamboo or poly boards to preserve the knife's edge.
  • Keep the knife clean and dry, especially if it is made of carbon steel. Carbon knives are prone to rusting.
  • Avoid using the knife to cut through bones or frozen foods. It's best to use a separate knife specifically designed for these tasks.
  • When cutting, use a smooth and fluid motion, avoid twisting or torquing the blade. This technique helps maintain control and minimizes the risk of damage.
  • Never put Japanese kitchen knives in the dishwasher. Instead, hand wash them with mild soap, ensuring thorough cleaning, and then dry them completely before storing.
