Ohishi Blue #1 Kurouchi Petty 135mm Maple Handle

$110.00

A line under the company Akifusa, Ohishi refers to the name of a small village near Mount Fuji where their knives are made. Coincidentally, Ohishi sounds very similar to “Oishi!” - a phrase people in Japan say to show their appreciation for a delicious meal. Carrying both Japanese and Western handled knives, Ohishi’s goal is to help people everywhere create “Oishi meals using Ohishi knives.”

The Ohishi Blue #1 Kurouchi line is a perfect blade to get a taste of full carbon steel, and learn all of its characteristics / maintenance at an entry price point.

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.
