Tadafusa Nashiji Blue #2 Petty 135mm Rosewood Handle
The Tadafusa Nashiji line is a perfect blade to get a taste of carbon steel without the full maintenance headache, thanks to the stainless cladding that protects most of the surface area from rust, while you can enjoy the long edge life and sharpness of blue #2 carbon steel. We find this construction to be the best of both types of steel, and hope more people try out this amazing this high-carbon steel!
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.
