The Harukaze Petty Cherry 135mm (5.3") is a hand-forged knife with hammer dents and a beautiful cherry wood handle. The shape of the blade will suit anyone looking to complete their collection with a smaller knife, perfect for more delicate and freehand tasks where a larger (and wider) knife would perhaps prove too unwieldy. Due to the choice of steel, the blade is also very easy to sharpen.

The centerpiece of this knife is Hitachi's Super Blue Steel (Aogami Super), which is the very top quality of traditional Japanese steels. Hammer dents on the upper part of the blade give it a unique and rustic appearance.

This knife was heat-treated to around 63 HRC. It is a very hard steel, meaning that it will retain a super-fine sharpness for a long time. In addition, due to the high carbon content (1.4-1.5%), the knife is very easy to sharpen. Among the high carbon steels, Aogami Super is also the least sensitive to rust. It also contains 0.4% vanadium as an admixture for micronized metal grains, which gives the steel more toughness. Aogami Super is rated as the most advanced carbon steel. The outer layers are of softer, stainless steel, giving the knife extra rust protection.

The knife bears visible impressions of the hand-forging process (round hammer dents on the blade), which gives it a beautiful finish and also prevents food from sticking to the blade.

The handle (traditional Japanese Wa) is oval and smooth, with no discernible transition between the cherry and red pakka wood. It’s suitable for both left- and right-handed users.

About Harukaze: 

In Japanese, the word Harukaze means "a windy spring". This smithy is famous for the best quality traditional steel used for the core of the blade, coupled with stainless outer layers and elegant wooden handles.
