SG2 Powdered Stainless
With a passionate devotion to knife-making as well as working with some of the most skilled craftsman in Japan, Sakai Kikumori has been making cutlery of incredible quality and performance since its inception in 1926.
The Kikumori SG2 Petty is constructed using an SG2 core steel which is cladded in softer stainless steel. SG2 is a powdered steel which can hold a very fine, super sharp edge for extended periods of time due to its exceptional hardness. The stainless steel cladding not only adds to the aesthetic of the blade but also provides added resistance to corrosion. The handle is a Western Style handle with a full tang construction and is made from Brown Polywood. The petty, often referred to as a utility knife is a smaller knife used for delicate tasks such as cutting herbs as well as smaller fruits and vegetables.
