Hitohira Imojiya ST Tsuchime Damascus Petty 135mm Pakka Handle (Yo)
The Hitohira Imojiya ST line is one that is not unfamiliar with heavy work. Using VG-10 stainless steel, paired with comfortable western-style handles, these knives are a pleasure to work with and care for. With slightly larger handles and leaning towards the heavier side, these blades naturally introduce themselves to those of us with larger hands.
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.
