Happy Christmas everyone...
Attached please find photographs of a very nice 150mm petty knife that I received yesterday.
All I know about this knife is that it was bought from NIYA in Tokyo, and that it is carbon steel. I have a box as well but haven't posted a picture of it. The box has green/brown/black stripes running lengthwise. I can take a pic if requested...
If anyone can help further identify it from the kanji I would be very grateful as it would be nice to know what kind of steel it is made from.
Apparently the man in the shop told Emily that of the knives she was pointing at, this one was the sharpest, but that it would rust. There was not much else in the way of information exchange, just a lot of pointing and bowing. I am very happy to have a carbon though.
I have never really used a petty before, and am kind of enjoying it.
Thank you in advance for any wisdom.
