Description

High Speed Steel is currently considered to be the most advanced stainless steel on the market for high end kitchen knives. A particular significance is the high amount of Cobalt (8%) in the steel alloy which give it its high wear resistance and durability. It makes it perfect for use in its original purpose of industrial machinery, but also excellent in high end kitchen knives which require long lasting edge retention.

It is not easy to forge kitchen knives with High Speed Steel and there are not many knife manufacturers that make the attempt. However, the end results are overwhelmingly positive if done successfully. A particular importance is during heat treatment when the steel reaches in excess of 1200 degrees Celsius. This temperature is extremely high even within forging handcrafted Japanese knives and combined with the state of the art steel, it is what makes the Yoshihiro High Speed Steel Gyuto its exceptional features.

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.

The High Speed Steel core is clad in full stainless steel for added protection and durability and comes with optional handcrafted Lacquered Magnolia Wood Saya knife cover for easy storage. Black Pakkawood is utilized on this full tanged handle and the stainless steel bolster enjoys an elegant finish that is quite uncommon within most handcrafted Japanese knives.
