Description: The Ohishi Damascus San Mai petty knife is a perfect choice for detail tasks. It is a good middle ground between a slicing knife and a paring knife and is a good choice for tasks ranging from slicing tomatoes to chopping garlic. The slender, lightweight blade combines control and precision.
Ohishi's Damascus San Mai Chef's Knives feature a blade of exquisite beauty. Layers of alternating SUS304 and SUS310 stainless steel (called damascus in the west - and suminagashi in Japan) surround a premium VG10 cobalt stainless steel core. Each knife is a unique design -- a true work of art. VG10 takes and holds a razor edge -- ensuring a silky and effortless cut. It is hardened to Hrc 60-61 for superior edge retention. This gives the blade an exceedingly tough, long lasting and chip resist edge that is relatively easy to sharpen. A convex grind (hamiguri-ba) assists food to release from the side of the knife. The ambidextrous blade features a 50/50 grind.
The traditional Japanese "Wa" style handle is octagonal. It is equally well suited for left handed and right handed users. Traditional Japanese handles allow the knife to be lighter and more nimble. Natural ho wood is combined with black buffalo horn for a handle that will last a lifetime. Like other kitchen knives, this knife should not be put in a dishwasher.
