6" 150mm W2 Honyaki XH Ko-Nabunka, in my extra-heavy geometry. This knife was designed to do everything my Ko-Gyuto (which is THE go-to knife in my kitchen...the ORIGINAL "Tall Petty"...before anyone else was doing them) does...but do it better. The kiritsuke tip and spine profile in particular allow for excellent tip work, while providing even more forward weight than the Ko-Gyuto. The only reason for grabbing ANYTHING else is because you want to play with it. A GREAT general use knife, line knife, and petty. It has a 50mm heel height vs the standard 'petty' 35mm, allowing for far greater utility. It will chop and do board work like a gyuto, break down protein like a petty, and scoop vegetables like a nakiri. The extra-heavy geometry provides a substantial feel, and added forward balance as well, for superior cutting/chopping performance and less perceived cutting effort, as well as substantially improved food release granted by the proprietary geometry.
The handle on this knife is triple red dyed and stabilized maple burl, in my western hybrid geometry. The spacer materials are black/red dyed mammoth tooth, with nickel silver accents and black G10 liners. Also included is a custom dyed and waxed matching leather saya.
