Takada no Hamono Silver #3 Suiboku Petty 135mm Rosewood Handle

$285.00

Mitsuaki Takada-san has trained under Hiroshi Ashi-san for years before setting up his own sharpening house, Takada Hamono late 2019. Takada-san has a unique sense of beauty in his patterns and profiles but what sets his work apart from other blades is his consistent convex grind that imbues both strength and cutting ability in perfect balance; additionally, his style minimizes ingredient stiction to the blade. He is a jolly man full of smiles, and we are proud to support his new venture.

Hand forged Silver #3 from Nakagawa, these Takada no Hamono blades have a high hardness point and perform similarly to carbon steel without the burden of rust management, making these an excellent choice for those who want a taste of carbon steel but are apprehensive about the maintenance. With its keen edge and convex geometry, these blades will smoothly cut through the toughest ingredients with ease. However, the edge is quite thin, thus we recommend users to cut with caution to avoid chipping. We recommend these blades to cooks with a gentle hand looking for a reliable carbon steel knife capable of handling nearly any task. 

Suiboku stands for “ink wash,” a style of painting originating in the Tang Dynasty of China using calligraphy-like brush strokes. The mirror polished edge combined with raw, dynamic lines from acid etching on the blade strikes a vivid comparison to the rivers and valleys portrayed in ancient East Asian paintings. Over time, a beautiful and subtle patina will develop on the 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 (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.
