Description: Petit gyuto hocho, meaning small slicing knife, are a great general purpose utility knife for tasks around the kitchen. The slender blade makes it very useful and versatile from slicing fruit to chopping garlic.
Each Nickel Damask knife is individually hand-forged beginning with a high carbon molybdenum, vanadium stainless steel core (hagane). This is surrounded by many layers of high contrast nickel Damascus. This time consuming process creates a knife with outstanding edge holding and beauty. The blade is distal tapered for optimal balance and has an extremely thin, keen edge for high performance.
The "Wa" style handle is octagon in shape and is sculpted from makassar ebony with a Pakka wood ferrule. This natural handle style is easy to grip and lasts a lifetime. Like other kitchen knives, this knife should not be put in a dishwasher.
