Description

The High Performance SLD is among the new generation of steels being engineered in Japan that endeavor to surpass the capabilities of existing metals. Its main features is that it is highly wear resistant with a hardness level that rivals Blue high carbon steel with a fairly good level of stain resistance. What this means is that this combination of features allows for a knife with excellent sharpness, long edge retention, with a stainless durability.

In addition, this particular knife emphasizes a superior cutting edge by utilizing a thin blade design that will effortlessly cut through foods with very little abrasions to its surface.

The blade comes complimented with a traditional Japanese handle that is made of Rosewood equipped with a protective wooden sheath called a “Saya,” which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use. This specific Saya included with the knife is brush coated with non-toxic lacquer coating made from organic tree saps in Japan. The octagonal shape of the handle allows for comfortable use regardless if the user is left or right handed.

Sometimes called a utility knife, the Petty is a smaller version of a chefs knife but is bigger than a Paring knife. The Petty fits in small places that require more dexterity than bigger chefs knives while handling bigger jobs than a Paring knife can take care of. The Petty will soon become the go to knife in your kitchen.

The difference will be felt right away when a hand-forged Japanese Petty knife of incomparable sharpness is used for smaller precision tasks such as peeling, trimming, and slicing small fruits and vegetables to handling bigger tasks as a small chefs knife. A razor sharp Petty knife can intricately carve and style vegetables and fruits for beautiful presentations and garnishes, performing just as well for bigger jobs such as preparing meals.

Preparing delicious meals starts with taking wholesome ingredients and using the best tools such as a high quality chef’s knife to make every meal into something special. From dicing, slicing, and chopping fresh produce from a farmer’s market to carving a roast chicken straight from the oven, even the simplest tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional.

    Initial impressions. The 135mm version is a nice intermediate size between a paring knife and a chef’s knife. It’s light and thin. Mine came razor sharp out of the box.

    This is my first experience with high performance SLD steel. It’s been easy to care for, especially in comparison to some other high carbon steels. Among other things, it’s less reactive. You still get a tube of oil and a stain eraser, though. I’m likely to let others use this one because it will certainly increase their appreciation for quality cutlery without too much risk to the knife.

    I expect this will get a lot of use.
