Wakui Petty 85mm
Toshihiro Wakui is a very talented blacksmith who is known for his superb grind and craftmanship. This series is forged from shirogami #2 (white #2) core steel with stainless cladding and a hardess of 63-64hrc. The blades are very thin behind the edge while still retaining a stiffness at the spine. Wakui's blades have a very enjoyable cutting feel and move through ingredients with ease. Handle is octagonal hoo wood.
