Stainless Clad 52100 Petty Knife 150mm
Kiritsuke style petty knife with 410 stainless steel lamination over a 52100 core. I forge weld the billets in the shop. These knives have a Hamaguriba cross section. They are quite thin behind the edge and tapper very gradually to the spine.
The handles and matching blade covers are Ash with nickel silver accent, also made in-house.
The handle installation is presently done with epoxy.
Comes in a vintage Kimono silk sleeve (colors vary).
