Sasaoka Hasami Petty Knife 120mm
There are knife makers who also forge scissors and shears and if there's one thing we've learned it's that the guys who forge two blades to work in perfect unison can certainly make a fine knife blade.
Tosa city's Sasaoka Hasamiya is a great example, and we like their petty knives. As a handcrafted item there will be slight variation in weight and length but close to stated specs. What you can certainly expect is a very sharp little knife out of the box.
The walnut used in the handle will retain its appearance for many years. It reflects Sasaoka san's philosophy of naga-mochi, or 'long use'. We also like that he uses resin to protect the tang from water ingress. Nice touch.
