Unshu Yukimitsu Hamono Petty Knife 135mm
The thin, hand-crafted blade of this petty has the near-machined finish that is characteristic of Mr Kusunoki's work, in this case paired with a rarely-seen bubinga handle for an overall length of 25.5cm, weight of 79 grams and what we think is a nice visual balance. Cuts well, by the way.
The polished blade is shirogami white#1 clad in nantetsu. The two have little visual contrast which makes for a uniquely attractive blade.
Shirogami #1 heat-treated as hard this offers terrific sharpness and long edge life. Note it will be susceptible to rust/discoloration if some basic procedures aren't followed. Keep a damp cloth on hand for periodic wiping during extended sessions at the board and wipe your knife dry after use, preferably after rinsing the blade in hot water.
