What is a Partoku Knife?
Up until the last ten years or so the Japanese Partoku™ knife was virtually unheard of in Western cultures. Today the only western version of the Partoku knife that I’m aware of only made by Chicago Cutlery.
Chicago Cutlery’s Partoku is a cross between a paring knife, Santoku and a Japanese Petty knife. The Partoku knife uses includes slicing cheese evenly, chopping, slicing, and dicing vegetables and fruit. Its biggest advantage over the paring knife is its wide blade, which makes it easy to scoop up (using the spine) chopped food.
Chicago Cutlery Partoku knives are sold in different styles and sizes to include Their Landmark Edition 5-inch Partoku has a blade that is constructed of high-carbon stainless steel and poly. Its cutting edge is straight, similar to a Santoku, with hollow ovals which allows it release moist foods.
Its high-carbon stainless steel creates a stronger, harder blade that resists stains, rust and pitting. It includes a full metal tang and a forged bolster, which protects your fingers from running up on the blade, and extends from the tip of the blade to the handle to provide added strength, balance, and control.
The Chicago Cutlery Landmark 5″ Partoku™ is available as part of the Chicago Cutlery Landmark™ Edition 3 Pc Asian Set and comes with a Full Lifetime Warranty.
