Tetsujin Hamono Blue #2 Kasumi Petty 165mm Ebony Handle


This distinct line of knives comes from the duo of childhood friends blacksmith Tetsu and sharpener Myojin, the latter known for his work on the famed Konosuke Fujiyama line. We at Tosho have previously carried knives under Konosuke from this duo, and are proud to bring their work in once more.

Compared to the Tetsujin Hamono Metal Flow line, the Kasumi series features a misty, opaque finish rather than forced patina. When dealing with carbon steel knives with a kasumi finish, it is important to note that patina and oxidation can manifest more visibly compared to an acid etched blade. If you want to restore the kasumi finish, it can be easily done with Tosho’s kasumi powder.

Constructed from Blue #2 carbon steel, these blades have a high performing edge, are easy to sharpen and will hold an edge better than most other carbon steel knives. Home cooks looking for a unique blade that offers the performance benefits of carbon steel without the full maintenance package will appreciate this series from Tetsujin Hamono. So, if you have been looking to try out carbon steel knives, but hesitated because of the horror stories involving tarnished foods and rusts, look no further.

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.
