This product is currently sold out.
Konosuke is one of the most exciting Japanese knife companies to watch out for their appetite to do things differently from the norm. The company is well regarded for its incredible attention to detail and performance when it comes to its products. If you are a lover of beautifully-made functional tools that have a unique design philosophy, join the fandom (and the waitlist..). We at Tosho are extremely proud to be their partners, and look forward to the next shipment!
This specific Sanjo line is done for Tosho, featuring almost all the possible textural and aesthetic addtions, except for damascus, in one blade. The A2 steel is one of our favourites for its ease of sharpening, edge holding and its toothy quality. The edges are very thin, so we recommend extreme caution during initial usage even for expert users to avoid micro chipping. We recommend these knives for experienced users who is looking for both ultimate performance and aesthetics in a single blade.
A petty (utility) knife probably gets used most often after your all-purpose knives. It can be used to cut small fruits, vegetables, and even some smaller cuts of meats (any many many more things, like cutting through plastic wrapping from a grocery trip!) If you have one, for a quick meal for two, you may just get it done without a chef's knife.
