Description from Quitokeeto
If you’re looking for hand-made, workhorse of a paring knife, this is it. Takeda’s version of a paring knife is brilliant for peeling, slicing, and other small hand-work with fruits and vegetables. This is a knife with a point of view, and each hand-forged Mini Petit NAS has huge amounts of the master blacksmith Shosui Takeda’s personality worked into it. We also stock the gyuto (multi-purpose chef knife), the nakiri (multi-purpose/vegetable), as well as a set.
Takeda Hamono is a third generation factory of blacksmiths, with roots going back to the 1920s. We love Takeda Hamono knives, and took it as a good sign that the maker’s mark includes a friendly heart stamped along the blade. The Takeda arrives from the factory “wow” sharp, and with the occasional visit to your sharpening stone this is a knife that is pure pleasure to use.
The Takeda Hamono mini petit ships in a gift-worthy box, with the blade wrapped in Japanese paper.
