Kaishin Kurouchi Aogami 2,  150mm Petty Knife

Handcrafted in Tosa on the island of Shikoku using the most traditional methods, this series by Kaishin is typical of the regions style. The blades in this collection retain quite a bit of thickness at the spine and are further characterised by their deep grinds and large Machi. This Kiritsuke petty is quite an unusual knife and we love the styling of the blade; its striking aesthetic is backed up by it’s toughness and versatility. The craftsmen selected Aogami 2 for the core as it has a great balance between hardness, toughness and wear resistance. This collection are built for heavy use and best suited to wide bevel sharpening.
