160mm Petty Knife

SKU: AH-0021

This Petty knife is made of 1095 steel. It has a differential heat treatment as seen by the light, flame shaped hamon close to the handle. I find this size knife very useful in the kitchen.

The blade very light and thin with an almost imperceptible S grind close the the heel. A grey patina was applied to the blade. 

The handle is a wa inspired, faceted handle made of stabilized Tiger Maple and Apricot. The handle grain pattern gives a holographic, three dimensional look. The handle was finished with multiple coats of a protective tung oil finish.

The handle and blade were hand-rubbed with a mixture of purified mineral oil and beeswax. Every step of this process was completed in my workshop creating a one of a kind, hand-forged knife.
