Despite retiring in 2020 due to health concerns, Mr. Itou, now 80, continues to produce limited-edition pieces, ensuring his legacy of masterful craftsmanship endures.

Mr. Itou (Itou Yusui) is a distinguished Japanese blacksmith from Echizen, Japan, renowned for his handmade knives that offer exceptional sharpness, vibrant handles, and unique artistry. Primarily using SG2 powdered steel for superior edge retention, each knife is carefully crafted with a hand-tapered full tang and polished handle for optimal balance and grip. 

Petty knives are a mix between slicing and paring knives known as the ideal blade for most food preparations that require added precision. They feature scalloped edges and blades that are slightly longer than standard paring knives. Heavily used by chefs for their sharp edges, the petty is very efficient for slicing fruits, vegetables, meats or poultry and even mincing garlic, onions and delicate herbs.
