Ohishi Kurouchi Tsuchime Blue Super Petty 135mm Pakka Handle
The core steel these knives utilize is Blue Super carbon steel. They will hold an incredible edge for a long while (one must keep clean and dry it often to prevent it from rusting, and a benign discolouration will form regardless).
We highly recommend these Ohishi blades as gifts for culinary students, professional cooks, young professionals moving into their first apartment, newly weds and more!
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.
