Moriya Munemitsu YHC belongs to the same group of companies as Yasugi Specialty Steels ('YSS'), producers of the fine Aogami Super Steel from which this knife is produced. They know what they're doing.
Aogami Super is the highest grade YSS cutlery steel and the company's knives showcase its properties of terrific sharpness and superior wear resistance. Manufacture is highly automated and while that may not be as romantic as some of the same company's artisanal wa-bocho, standards and quality control are industry-leading. Heat treatment is exacting.
The Aogami Super Petty is a compact multi-use knife for the home kitchen that offers that wicked Japanese sharpness in a light, easy-care package. Easy care due in large part to the Gingami#3 stainless steel enveloping the Aogami Super, however do note that the 5mm or so of the cutting edge will be prone to developing rust spots if not looked after. Wash well and rinse the blade in hot water before wiping dry.
Full-tang construction lends strength and balance. Excellent fit and finish. Great steel.
