A simple and stylish petty from Konosuke's new GS+ range.
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. The knuckle clearance isn't great on the board given its height but works great off the board. Very thin going into the handle at the spine and that continues with a distal taper all the way to the very thin tip.
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.
