Sakai Genkichi Kurouchi Warikomi White steel 2 Petty knife 160mm (6.3") Magnolia Wood with Akebono-Nuri Urushi Lacque
This "OLD SCHOOL" Petty knife was made by Sakai Genkichi from Sakai city in Osaka Prefecture in Japan. 160mm long blades are hand-forged in Japanese traditional method "Warikomi" (Inserted hard core steel between softer steel) using White steel 2 as a core. Japanese traditional knife handle made from Magnolia Wood with unique Japanese Akebono-Nuri Urushi finished.
Excellent size. The balance and finishing of the knife are great.
My very first Japanese knife and I have new feelings when using it. Outstanding handle; razor-sharp right out of the box. I only need to learn how to re-sharpen it myself. Better than I had anticipated when I placed the order. I'm going to get another one. Delivered in 4 days to a distant location. Very professional service and product.

After use, wash it with a soft sponge, wipe the knife dry and store safely. Avoid cutting the bones, frozen foods, hard fruit pits.
Recommended cutting surface: wood, rubberized boards, and high-end composites, as well as quality plastics such as polyethylene, make acceptable cutting surfaces and will help protect and extend the life of the knife's edge.
