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!
The HD2 line is made from proprietary semi-stainless steel that takes on an easy patina and a keen edge. The masterfully done convex geometry allows smooth cutting performance through even the toughest of ingredients, without chipping easily. We highly recommend this line to virtually any cook who is looking to invest in a carbon-like stainless steel blade that can handle nearly all tasks.
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.
