Jikko 150mm Petty Knife. Aogami Super carbon steel core with stainless cladding. Magnolia wood handle with water buffalo horn ferrule.

Aogami super, or super blue steel, is formulated for a long edge life.  Where other steels become rounded as they dull, aogami super seemingly micro-chips, maintaining an aggressive edge even as the knife dulls. Highly recommended for busy professional cooks and equally great as a home knife. It should be mentioned that the core is not stainless and should be dried after use.  It will develop a dark patina with normal use, but any orange rust should be removed with a light abrasive or sharpening.

Jikko is a family business established in 1901 in Sakai City, Osaka and has cultivated extensive relationships with traditional craftsman in Sakai.  From basic to top shelf, Jikko maintains a high standard of quality control. Wonderful in house sharpening is done on all of their single bevel knives, and special care is taken to provide a flat, fine-polished ura (side opposite omote bevel)
