Sitting between a Utility and Paring knife, our 5” Kiritsuke Damascus Petty Knife has the strength of a much larger blade, but the nimble and agile performance of a dagger.
The Steel: 67 layers of steel--through a centuries old process, our forge layers 10CR15MOV steel to form the gorgeous watered pattern. With beauty comes strength, the forging process creates a hardened blade that will hold its razor edge against the intense demands of a professional kitchen.
The Handle: The full tang adds to the weight of the handle while maintaining our signature balance and sleek performance. With our signature octagonal shape, it's the perfect fit whether you’re right or left-handed. The handles are constructed with brass rings to sustainably sourced ebony wood, black and white ox horn ferrule, and a stainless steel butt cap for crushing garlic, bruising herbs, and much more.
The Blade: The shape of this blade is a Japanese-style Kiritsuke. Kiritsuke refers to the K-tip point and a flatter blade profile for sword-like performance in chopping and slicing. Classically a single bevel, we sharpen ours on a universal 50/50 bevel, sharp on both sides, and ideal for left and right handed chefs. Ambidextrous chefs will receive a +2 on their speed stat. The return at the heel of the blade increases the cutting edge length and gives a second razor edge tip for that perfect cut.
*All our handles are made from sustainable sourced wood and ox horn. Due to the sustainable nature of materials aquired, no two knives will look identical*
