Takamura Octagon 150mm Petty Knife
This petty knife belies it's performance with its cutesy good looks. The octagonal handle gives a firm nod to the traditional handles attached to Japanese style blades with the added advantage of a seamless bolster. The handles are comfortable, practical and accommodate a variety of hand sizes.
Takamura Octagon Series
The Octagon series from Takamura are hammer forged knives true to the Echizen Uchihamono tradition. The blades are made from R2 steel clad in layers of soft and hard steel to create a flowing damascus pattern. The damascus pattern is further enhanced by a light acid etch that brings out the beauty of the hammer forged damascus. A fully integrated stainless bolster and stainless counterweight is embedded in the end of the handle to further enhance the charms of this range.
The Takamura Edge
All powder steel knives produced by Takamura Hamono are ground to a razor fine edge. They are seriously sharp but be careful not to cut dense items as you may damage the edge. We also do not recommend these knives to customers who feel their knife skills may need brushing up.
- This blade is sharpened to a fine edge and will chip if mishandled
- Use only on foods with no hard seeds, bones or tough parts
- Do not slice through the caramelized parts of meat or crackling
