The Tojiro Shippu Black Petty knife 13 cm is in size, between a chef’s knife and a paring knife, making it the perfect size for all those in-between tasks. 

It is ideal for a multitude of small tasks and other jobs where precision is essential.
Any time a paring knife seems like too little and a chef’s knife too much, it is time for a petty knife. 

Its very slightly curved belly enables it to do moderate rocking cuts. It’s nimble enough to peel an onion in hand, then slice it up in short order. 

The Tojiro Shippu Black is a new, extremely attractive version of the best-selling Shippu DP Damascus knife series.

The unique combination of west style blades with Japanese style handles now has a stylish, darkened robe.
Practical blades of 
24° with a double cut made of high quality Damascus steel: 63 layers of stainless steel, protecting the hard core of VG-10 steel, an extremely hard core alloy with the addition of cobalt, hardened to a hardness of 60+/-1 HRC Rockwell, developed by Takefu industries

The core is clad with 31 layers on each side with a softer, corrosion-resistant 13-chrome steel.

The effect of the waves propagating on the blade is highlighted by a black oxide coating formed in the oxidation of steel.
This solution increases the life of the knife and its resistance to corrosion.
Handles blend beautifully with the blackened steel. 

The Shippu Black series consists of traditional Japanese shaped knives. The relatively large traditional D-handle on these knives is made from light-weight tempered chestnut wood, reinforced with a resin ring.

Because they are also protected with transparent varnish, they show high resistance to moisture and discoloration.

The handle is shaped in the traditional Japanese D-shape. Basically this means it is suited for right-handed use, but the asymmetry does not bother for left-handed users.
