Not to hijack, but what's that knife on the bottom. Looks like one of the rare few Japanese petties that's in more of a paring knife size, and with a proper sized handle to boot...

speaking of the devil:

Got the knife in friday, busy with work so used it for the first time yesterday! It's a lovely knife with a great cutting feel for sure. It arrived in a bit rough shape with some spots of rust and a slightly rounded tip but nothing out of the ordinary. I saw it as a great excuse to polish it up a bit and put an edge on it. Only polished with the kitayama 6k and a uchi fingerstone. More cutting feedback later 👌 🤠

It's official, I have really fallen in love with the knife :upsidedownspin: After having it used at work for a few days it really became my go to for everything from prep to service.Normally I am more of a many knives kind of guy (as many as i can during prep and at least a gyuto and petty or sometimes a slicer during service) but this week I used it for everything except the slicing of scallops.

It is a great size for the smaller kitchen I work in, the profile is nice and easy to work with and the geometry is a joy to use. The geometry is right in between the for me too skinny lasers and my favorite but sometimes too heavy workhorse.

Edge retention has been very good for a shirogami knife and didn't have the need to touch it up yet after use on poly boards.The stainless clad is a plus (especially because it still polishes nice), the core patinas steadily with no nasty residue on onions for example.

All with all a joy to use and am not really looking forward to having it leave 🥺

Thanks Carl for organising this Passaround! 🤠

oops, I think the rust means I need to get some oil and should have oiled the knife before shipping!
Sorry for that!
