Anryu Shiro Petty 130mm Purchase options

A perfect mid sized petty. Nimble, light and ideal for working with smaller ingredients.


You will be able to achieve a really fine, sharp edge with white #2 steel, it won't hold its edge as long as some other steels but for most people who aren't prepping veg all day you won't really notice, just give it a hone when you feel the edge going and that will keep the edge in tip top condition.


The contrast between the layered carbon steel core and dark, soft iron cladding make it both understated and eye catching at the same time.


The blacksmith or kurouchi finish will protect it to a certain extent however care must be taken to dry the knife carefully after use.

White #2 is a dream to sharpen and will take a screamingly sharp edge and this ranges represents great value for money from such an outstanding blacksmith.

Ease of Care

White #2 steel is really easy to sharpen so maintaining it should be a breeze.

This being a reactive knife you will need to wipe and dry carefully after each use though and over time a patina will develop.

Our Verdict

The shiro range is great value either as a first knife or an addition to a collection. 

Anryu san is an excellent blacksmith with more than 50 years skill and experience and so you're guaranteed a superb knife for the money with this range.
