Yu Kurosaki - Japanese Petty - Small Kitchen Paring Knife
Blade - Petty (125 mm) - R2/SG2 Damascus Stainless Steel - forged and hammered by Master Blacksmith Yu Kurosaki in Japan.
R2/SG2 is a special Stainless steel that is supremely hardened, for maximum sharpness and edge retention. R2/SG2 can be sharpened to a much higher level than other stainless steels that are common in the western hemisphere.
The 'wa' (handle) is traditional octagonal shape with rounded ends & edges, and dialed-in tapered geometry for ultimate comfort based on intended usage. This handle is made from rare Pink Ivory wood, with a bolster of pearlescent resin, and a single brass stabilizing pin; lovingly hand crafted in our Austin, TX wood shop.

Important notes and care instructions:
1. To clean: wipe the blade and handle with a damp, soapy cloth, and promptly dry.
2. DO NOT store the knife wet or leave it submerged/soaking in water and NEVER EVER wash it in a dishwasher.
3. Occasionally apply a small amount of food-safe mineral oil to the blade (and the handle) to preserve beauty, and maintain rust resistance. Avoid using cooking oils, as they can become rancid over time.
