Takeshi Saji was born in 1948 in Takefu (Fukui prefecture), a city located roughly in the center of Japan and in the heart of an area for centuries devoted to the production of blades. His workshop is still there, built around the oven thanks to which, for several years now, Takeshi Saji forges steel (especially damascus) with which he makes various models of traditional Japanese knives. The choice of materials for the finishes (mainly natural), the essential lines - evocative of use - and the chromatic combinations of rare impact make his creations unique and unmistakable in the panorama of world cutlery and, at home, they have earned him the prestigious title of Master.

The blade is equipped with a central plate in Blue Steel carbon steel coated on the sides with layers of steel, brass and copper plates that help to increase the resistance to oxidation and resilience.

Once again, Master Saji has succeeded in creating an innovative new art style for his knives, combining the traditional "Sakura-Maki" handle and the striking rainbow Damascus blade.

The Petty is a small utility knife used for peeling, shaping, slicing fruit and vegetables, chopping herbs and making side dishes.
