Muneishi aogami petty 120mm is the Japanese version of a paring knife. Its longer, taller blade makes a petty more versatile than a paring knife.

History and curiosity

Muneishi-hamono was founded in 1955, Mr. Hirotaka Muneishi, the second generation blacksmith, makes forest knives such as axes and machetes, and Mr. Kosuke Muneishi, the third generation blacksmith, forges kitchen knives. Kosuke Muneishi does all the steps himself: quenching, forging, hammering and cutting the knives.

This blade was therefore made with an Aogami #2 steel core, a steel with a hardness of approximately 62-63 HRC. The core has a stainless steel coating with a kurouchi finish to make it easier to maintain this blade.

The handle

The handle was made with an amboyna burl and Juma snakeskin effect ferrule.
