Hatsukokoro VG10 petty 150mm is the Japanese equivalent of a paring knife. However a petty has a higher and longer blade than a paring knife, therefore it is known as a universal knife.

History and curiosity

Since its establishment in 2013, H&K Co. Ltd has sought out the best products Japan has to offer. In 2019, we developed our original brand “Hatsukokoro”. The word Hatsukokoro comes from the Japanese proverb “don’t forget your original intention”.

Due to the contracts stipulated between the brand and the blacksmiths, sometimes the identity of certain blacksmiths remains a mystery, which makes things a little more exciting.

This series is designed entirely in VG10 steel, one of the best known Japanese steels and used in cutlery. This steel offers us resistance to oxidation, simple and easy maintenance when sharpening.

The handle

Handcrafted, the handle is made of bog oak with ferrule and bottom cap in yellow cedar burl. The bog oak remains submerged in bogs for centuries, giving the wood its hardness and black color. This specimen dates from approximately 7000 years.
