Hitohira Imojiya Kuma Blue #2 Nashiji Tsuchime Petty 135mm Pakka Handle
Featuring an excellent handle feel, convex edge, and san mai construction, the Hitohira Kuma makes for a very appealing and usable line of knives. Using Blue #2 carbon steel at its cutting edge, these knives boast a great edge life and make for fun sharpening jobs. The Kuma line is built to last, and you'll enjoy using them along the way.
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.
