Petty Hammered Finish by Ikeuchi Hamono is a short, single bevel petty knife (right-handed users only!), intended for all sorts of smaller kitchen tasks, like mincing herbs, cleaning and preparing vegetables, peeling potatoes, you name it!
This Petty is made of White steel #2 (Shirogami) with visible traces of hammer and the kuro-uchi protective patina (black part on top of the blade). The blade is forged to a hardness of 61-62 HRC. It is intended for experienced knife owners who know how to handle and take care of knives made of White steel #2, which will develop some patina due to the high amount of carbon (C) in their chemical structure.
The handle is made of Magnolia wood with a plastic ferrule.
