Konosuke GS+ Petty 150mm Purchase options

This petty from Konosuke is a semi stainless knife, a 3 layer sandwich with the core semi stainless steel clad in a softer steel and machine finished. Incredibly light, this is a very thin laseresque knife that is very sharp.

Finished with a beautiful chestnut octagonal handle made by Studio Khii, the gap where the tang goes into the handle is an aesthetic take on traditional method of handling the knives.

This knife has a corresponding saya designed especially.

First Impressions

Excellent sharpness right out of the box, the GS+ is ready to rock and it's long been one of our favourite ranges when we recommend a super lightweight laser.

Beauty

A very elegant, simple knife in terms of looks with a polished finish and an embossed kanji on the blade. The longer khii handle coupled with the excellent fit and finish gives it a very stylish look. 

In Hand

This knife is very light and the finish of the spine and heel means that there are no sharp edges to catch your fingers on. The octagonal wa handle can be used for left or right handed use too and with the balance point being on or around a pinch grip this knife is very comfortable to use.

Durability

This is a very thin knife so care must be taken to not use it on bones or really hard veg such as butternut squash. 

Ease of Care

This is a semi-stainless knife so whilst it won't need the care of a full carbon knife, it isn't completely stainless so some spotting may occur. Word on the street is that it seems pretty stainless but always best to wipe down after use!

Our Verdict

Konsosuke knives are very sought after, and we can see why. The fit and finish on these is excellent and we think they provide great value for money.
