Yoshihiro Petty (Utility Knife) Kurouchi 120mm:

If you haven’t used any carbon steel before then you haven’t experienced superior knife quality.
Cutting power and edge retention that is normally unmatched by stainless knives.
A knife made in Osaka by Yamawaki Cutlery Co., Ltd.

Yamawaki Cutlery Co., Ltd. has been making knives and cutlery since 1952.

I actually stumbled upon Yoshihiro knives when I was at the Japanese knife museum in Sakai.
Yamawaki has knives in the museum.
The knife factory is only a couple blocks away from the Museum.

This knife is a high quality black forged white #2 steel, soft iron clad.
The Yew wood handle gives the blade a real unique colour contrast.
Another beautiful workhorse from a very renown maker in Sakai, Osaka.

*The steel in this knife is subject to corrosion, so be sure to follow knife care instructions to help avoid surface rust
(rust is iron oxide Fe2O3 and is harmless to the body.)

    What a beauty! This brilliant blade is a perfect addition to my knife roll. It’s razor sharp, easy to maintain due to being carbon steel with a stainless clad and is still a serious tool whilst looking so refined.
    Speedy delivery and great service.
    The last utility knife I’ll ever need to buy.
