Description: Petty knives are perfect for detail tasks and can be used either as paring knives or as slicing knives. The thin, distal tapered blade is perfect for slicing fruit, vegetables, or meat.
Tojiro DP Damascus knives are designed for the chef looking for a superb tool that is also an object of subtle beauty and distinction.
The core of the forged double bevel laminated blade is made from pure stain-resistant high-carbon steel alloyed with molybdenum overlaid with 36 separate fine layers of steel, alternating between high-carbon and low-carbon stainless, giving the knife exceptional strength. These layers are then polished to create a subtle, shimmering patterning effect to the blade surface. The effect of this technique is called suminagashi in Japanese, which translates as floating mist. The result is a blade that will take and hold an extremely sharp edge, but is strengthened by the Damascus outer layer.
The handles are formed from Pakawood, laminated hardwood impregnated with resin.
