This Office knife, also called Petty knife, is a typical Japanese cooking tool used on a daily basis for all smaller, precise cutting tasks in the kitchen: peeling, pitting fruit, chopping herbs, creating garnishes. Once you start using it, you'll always want it within reach even if its a little bit longer than our usual petty knives.
Handmade Fujiwara Nashiji Petty knives are made of extremely hard white carbon steel, clad with stainless steel. Therefore they combine characteristics of carbon steel (extreme hardness, an edge that stays sharp for a very long time and is easy to sharpen) and stainless steel (easy to maintain, reduced risk of rusting).
The line has been named Nashiji (Japanese term for "pear skin”), in reference to the blade's finish.
The Fujiwara family started as blade forgers over 130 years ago. First farm tools then swords. After WWII the production of swords was severely limited and the family turned to knives and scissors for production industries.
