Kotetsu Type 3 AS Petty 135mm Purchase options

A good sized petty that is incredibly light and sharp out of the box.

Like his other range, the Iron Clad these knives are spectacularly sharp out of the box which given that he is one of the best sharpeners in Japan is no surprise.

The Aogami super blue ensures that the edge will last for a long time between sharpens and the stainless cladding means that it won't need as much care as a full carbon blade.

Performance

Top marks - So sharp out of the box, light, and will fly through any amount of prep work you can throw at it.

Beauty

These knives have a beautiful shape, very simple and stylish with no decoration. You'll love these if you like understated beauty.

Comfort

These knives are very comfortable in the hand, the octagonal handle looks like it would be uncomfortable but it really isn't. The fact that these knives are so light means that you can use them for ages without feeling any fatigue.

Durability

As with all Japanese knives the harder and thinner the blade the more prone to chipping they will be. The usual advice stands, don't hit any bones, twist the blade or hit the chopping board.

These knives given care will last a lifetime.

Ease of Care

As will all carbon steel knives there is an element of care needed. These knives are clad in a softer stainless steel which means the only part of the knife that will patina will be the exposed cutting edge. This will develop over time and give your knife a unique look.

Our Verdict

These knives are hand-forged and sharpened by Shibata San one of the best sharpeners in Japan and offer excellent value for money.
