Tojiro's Shirogami Petty is a great multi-purpose entry-level knife into the mystical world of carbon reactive Japanese knives. Shirogami White steel #2 will change color, get patina, and, if not taken care of properly, develop rust. The advantage of Shirogami steel is the ability to be sharpened to a very sharp edge quite easily.

Petty knives are basically a smaller version of Gyutos (Chef's knives), intended for all those smaller tasks where larger knives are deemed unwieldy. A must-have knife in every kitchen since it is used for peeling, paring and decorating food.

The knife was left an unprocessed black patina on top of the blade, called kuro-uchi, which gives it a raw, unfinished look. The traditional Japanese D-shaped handle is made of magnolia wood and boast a plastic ferrule.

Overall, this petty offers a great price-performance ratio for users interested in carbon reactive, high maintenance kitchen knives.
