Aogami Blue (and moreso, Super Blue) Steel knives are in realm of the “Holy Grail” for kitchen blades. You can easily drop close to $200 for a hand-forged blue paring knife of this size.

This design is commonly referred to as a Japanese Carpenter’s (or Craftman’s) knife but works well for many tasks (including small prep work) as long as you choke the blade in a scalpel or tournade grip. The handle is there mostly to protect the blade and as a counterbalance.

Functionally, you’ll notice that it operates in a similar fashion to an old straight shaving razor. So, approach it in a similar fashion; ironically, Japanese straight-razors are actually fixed blade, but I digress…

All good things aside, keep in mind blue steels are high-carbon, meaning they will rust if you do not care for, and oil them.

But man, they will split hairs if you want them too.
