Kikuichi Warikomi Gold Petty Knife

Our Price: $99.95

Kikuichi Warikomi Gold Petty Knife:
  • Blade Length: 5.1 in. (130mm)
  • Handle Length: 114.3 mm
  • Weight: 2.2 ounces
  • Handle Type: Wood (Mahogany)
  • Bevel Type: Double Bevel
  • Steel type: VG-1

  • Kikuichi's Warikomi line uses high quality VG-1 sometimes known as V-Gold steel. This VG-1 (Gold) Steel is not only rare but it is highly prized due to its properties; will hold an edge (comparable to VG-10), it is tough and will chip less than a damascus clad knife, and is stain resistant. Warikomi is made San Mai style (manufactured with a soft stainless steel) like most VG steel knives; this is because the steel is so hard it would be difficult to thin and shape the blade without the softer steel coat. The Petty or Utility is a great blade to accomplish the smaller cutting tasks, garnishing fruits and vegetables, crushing and mincing garlic cloves, preparing herbs. Kikuichi makes their knives in Nara, Japan.
