Takamura is a small knife shop located in Echizen City, Japan run bythird generation blacksmith Terukazu Takamura who inherited the business from hisfather. According to Takamura the three pillars of making a good knife are the steel, the forging process and sharpening, this might seem obvious but Takamura truly takes this to heart and it shows in the knives they make. These knives are quite light even when compared to some other Japanese knives and are beautifully balanced.
Petty knives are great for all the little things; chopping up shallots and garlic, triming the fat from meat and even some small butchery tasks. Pair it with a santoku if you're a home cook and you'll have everything you need to be successful. As a professional, these knives can handle breaking down chickens, other small animals and even some fish and can even handle some slicing jobs, the perfect knife to use during service on line where space is limited.
