A simple but efficient design for this petty knife made with a stainless VG steel and a well fitted, understated octagonal wood handle.
This would be a great option for a first Japanese knife and ideally sized and lightweight for a wide range of jobs.
We don't currently stock knives from Sakai Kikumori so this is a one-off for us at the moment although we will be adding stock from them over the next year, we think you'd definitely like this one from a company who have been making knives and swords in the Seki area of Japan for more than 600 years.
- Blade Length: 154mm (Measurement of the cutting edge)
- Total Length: 278mm (Blade + Handle)

- Blade height: 27.3mm Heel to spine

Our aim is to measure everything as accurately as possible but some specifications (such as hardness for example) are provided by the manufacturer and therefore should be used as a guide only.
