The blade is forged Damascus Aoniko, high carbon steel with 17 layers of Damascus. This blade is made of Aogami number 2 (blue steel #2) with excellent sharpness and durability. 

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

This blade needs to be cared for more than stainless steel as it will rust easier, water should be removed immediately. It is a fascinating knife that can be used widely from home to professional. 

This knife maker is Sawakazuma from Echizen city, Fukui which is located along the Sea of Japan. Echizen knives have a long history, dating back 700 years. While Japanese knives as a whole are typically designed with thinner blades than their European counterparts, the knives coming from Echizen take that a step further and are even narrower.

Great knife!

My SAWAKAZUMA GINRYU DAMASCUS knife is very comfortable to use and very sharp. I have other blue steel knives and they hold an edge well and are easy to sharpen. This one will provide many decades of use.
