Ginsan is a Japanese steel which is very fine-grained stainless steel and can have an edge sharpness and edge retention similar to some high-carbon steels. This steel is generally thought to be slightly easier to sharpen than VG-10 while also slightly more susceptible to rust due to the lower chromium content.

Petty & Paring knives are small utility kitchen knives perfect for small proteins, fruits and vegetables.

Well made

I got the nakiri from this set six months ago and it's one of my favourite so I figured the petty would be equally good, and it is. The spine and choil are rounded, the overall weight and balance are nice. I like the steel and how it sharpens although I haven't sharpened this specific knife yet. This will replace a VG10 Ittetsu Tafu petty that I did not enjoy using
