Black finish is an old-fashioned Japanese style of kitchen knife made with a finishing method. The method does not scrape the entire surface of the blade that has been hardened by quenching, but leaves the black portion of the side other than the blade. This blade is made of Aogami super (blue super steel) with excellent sharpness and durability. This blade needs to be cared for more than stainless steel as it will rust easier, water should be removed immediately.
The blade has a hammer eye pattern full and is a fascinating knife that features that can be used widely from home to professional. The handle uses Spanish Mahogany and Japanese Keyaki which is a precious tree with a beautiful hard grain of wood in Japan. Please do not cut bone or frozen food. It may cause the knife to chip or other damaged. No dishwasher please.
Petty & Paring knives are small utility kitchen knives perfect for small proteins, fruits and vegetables.
First purchase and will buy more. From the packaging to the bandaids…which thankfully I haven’t needed yet I’m very impressed.
My wife loves her new knife!
My second purchase from Hasu-Seizo of an Aogami Super Blue knife, and this one for my wife. She absolutely loves it and I've weaned her off of her favorite Global kitchen knife. I even purchased a Suheiro "Snow White" stone to put a razor edge on both of my Aogami knifes - and am sure I will add a sushi knife to my collection. I have not needed the band-aids you sent with the knives, Midori, but greatly appreciate the kindness! George
