All in all, a great knife at a great value.

(The meaning comes through but the English is a bit mangled) my mom and I had a lot of fun reading them aloud to each other.

The knife is very sharp out of the box and holds an edge fairly well for such a fine-edged blade.

I'm fairly sure this is the knife that my mom bought me as a gift from Amazon. Ten inch utility knife with six inch blade. Made by Tojiro.

This is a very lovely knife. It comes in a pretty gold box with some very badly translated instructions. (The meaning comes through but the English is a bit mangled) my mom and I had a lot of fun reading them aloud to each other.

I do all my own cooking due to my food allergy. So I'm not cutting as much as a professional but I use a knife at last three times a day. I have small hands and delicate wrists so it's wonderful to find a knife that has a small enough handle but a long enough blade to actually do something with. The handle fits perfectly in my hand and doesn't cause stress to my wrists. The blade is really sharp. The blade size is perfect. It's not too big and not too small. So there is no difficulty chopping or slicing. It cuts everything: cheese, vegetables, raw meat and even carving a chicken is easy. I haven't actually used any of my other knifes since my mom bought this for me.

I have an aversion to processed foods, so I cook a lot and cook from scratch. I want the job to be an easy as possible and this knife certainly makes that happen. It has a nice feel to the handle and has made everything I've thrown at it simple. I have two go-to knives and this is number one. Well worth the price!

This is my first experience with Tojiro and this Petty/general purpose knife doesn't disappoint. When I need to add a new blade in the kitchen, I'll be adding to the DP collection. Very nice quality if you prefer Japanese style knives.

I'm not a chef, but I am an avid knife user/collector with experience using many different types of knives and steels both in the kitchen and in the wilderness. This is a nice 5.9" blade in laminated VG-10 steel. In my experience, laminated VG-10 is highly corrosion resistant and typically sharp and easy to maintain. The core steel is typically fairly sturdy while the outer steel is softer so that it's easier to sharpen. In theory, the dead center of the cutting edge is the stronger V1-10 while steel that is on the exterior that tapers to the cutting point is the softer laminate. I've used VG-10 laminated steel in three different Fallkniven knives, various Spyderco folders and of course this Tojiro. Overall, it's a steel ideally suited for kitchen use and it's well-implemented in this Petty.

The knife is very sharp out of the box and holds an edge fairly well for such a fine-edged blade. It does get a bit sharper with some high grit water stone care. The knife is sturdy enough for most tasks, but does have some flex to it as one would expect from a utility knife in this size. If you require something more solid, look to the larger Gyutos, Santokus or Nakiris. The handle is well-made and it's somewhat blocky on the corners and IMO makes for a more secure grip.

This knife is perfect for slicing vegetables where a larger chef's knife is not desired, for trimming undesirable fat off pork and chicken and preparing fruits, etc.

When I use a petty knife at work its going to either be used during a busy service or in some capacity where I don't care what happens to it. It's the disposable knife. Given that this knife holds an acceptable edge and is priced reasonably enough for that purpose for me. I wouldn't recommend it for home use as the handle has imperfections and there are several spots on the blade that required polishing to get rough edges, such as the spine of the blade. It fits my needs and would recommend it in the disposable capacity but not as much else. I might just spend the extra money for a Misono petty next time just for the better handle.

I now own 3 different Tojiro knives. I've tried them all (including Wusthof, Henckels, Global, Shun and Miyabi) and, for the money, you can't do better than Tojiro for a low maintenance professional grade knife. The VG-10 steel holds a razor sharp edge and will go a reasonably long time between sharpenings.

This Japanese knife is very sharp compared with cheaper ones people usually buy at department/big box stores. It is an "entry level" knife when compared with other Japanese steel though.

All in all, a great knife at a great value. A++++++++
