Takamura is a small hamono located in the heart of Takefu, Fukui Japan. Run by third generation blacksmith Terukazu Takamura who inherited the business from his father Toshiyuki Takamura. VG-10 is a great steel. Utilizing a higher carbon content (1%) allows this steel to retain a longer edge while keeping stainless due to the 15% of Chromium. VG-10 steel is a workhorse style steel. Not prone to chipping and easy to sharpen, this is the steel choice for many chefs and professional cooks.
The 130mm petty is a great size for small tasks in the kitchen. Paring, peeling and fine dice is great while using this little workhorse.
These have been our go to petty for over a decade - says a lot for a KNIFE shop.
