Description: Okeya knives are made by a multi generational family blacksmith shop run by Okeya-san and his son. Okeya-san's grandfather started the company making small, handy knives (kiridashi) for multi-purpose uses such as cutting, whittling, and some cooking utility knives. They plan to make knives for generations to come.
The wide petty is perfectly suited for fine-detailed tasks such as dicing, julienne, batonnet and brunoise. From mincing garlic and scallions to small chopping tasks, this is a great knife to grab. The wide profile allows the knife to be used over a cutting board with plenty of finger clearance, while the short blade makes this knife easy to control.
A central core of hard Shirogami #2 is set between thin layers of stainless steel, resulting in a keen, long lasting edge with easier maintenance. White steel is a favorite of sushi chefs for tasks requiring a very fine edge. It is a steel that tests the skill of the bladesmith in both forging and heat treating. The blade has a migaki (satin) finish.
The ambidextrous oval handle fits comfortably and securely in the hand. It is formed from ho wood and is completed with a plastic ferrule.
This knife provides fantastic performance at an economy price.
