The Blacksmith

Muneishi Cutlery goes back to 1955 where grandfather, and now head of the company Kousuke Muneishi started making agricultural tools but has since branched off into making kitchen knives. Based in Tosa City, Kochi Prefecture, Japan, Muneishi knives are high performing but hold back on the flash to keep them affordable workhorses for the professional or home cook alike. 

The Knife

The petty knife is great for all the little random tasks you come across in your day to day life in the kitchen. If you're a professional looking for something compact and nimble you can use on the line during service, perform various butchery tasks and small vegetable prep this is a great option. Likewise if you're a home cook these make great knives to leave out on the counter during the day to help with small breakfast and lunch tasks like cutting up fruit, maybe slicing a tomato and cutting a sandwich in half, before getting the Chef's knife out for larger dinner prep. These are great little knives that are an essential for both home cooks and professionals. 

Knife Care (Iron Clad)

  • This Knife is made from 3 layers of material; A layer of iron on each side protecting a layer of carbon steel at the core, in a process referred to as Sanmai or forge welding. Iron and carbon steel are both susceptible to rust and must be kept dry and clean at all time’s to avoid oxidation and discolouration.
  • Simply wipe the knife with a damp cloth immediately after use.
  • Wash with regular dish soap and warm water using a none abrasive sponge or cloth.
  • Never put your knife in the dishwasher! The extreme heat will ruin the wooden handle.
  • Highly acidic ingredients (Onions, Tomatoes, Citrus) Will cause rust and oxidation to happen faster, thus the user must ensure the knife is wiped clean immediately after working with such an ingredient.
  • Should any rust form it can be removed using a rust eraser or a mixture of Baking soda and water to simply scrub it clean.
  • Avoid Bones, Frozen foods, nuts and hard candies or anything other than fruits, vegetables and proteins.
