Hitohira TD Blue #2 Stainless Clad Kurouchi Petty 150mm Walnut Handle

$175.00

Hitohira is our brand new supplier that has been absolutely killing it. The president, Mr. Hokuto Aizawa, has traveled the world in his mid-20s and saw firsthand how Japanese kitchen knives are adored throughout the northern hemisphere and decided to make the products even more accessible. Now, Hitohira brings many new and old favourites back into our shelves with consistency, making our clients even happier. 

For Hitohira all lines, there are abbreviations and pseudonyms to organize and identify the products. If you have any questions about the individual craftsman involved, send us an email, and we can do our best to clarify within our limits. 

The TD Blue #2 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 high-carbon steel!  (one must keep clean and dry the whole blade often to prevent it from rusting, and a benign discolouration/patina will form regardless). 

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 (and 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.
