Info regarding the Artifex 150 petty ?

Fri Oct 19, 2012 6:32 pm

I just bought the honesuki and am very pleased with the quality and value so now I'm considering the Artifex 150mm petty. But I would like to know how tall the blade is? From the picture it looks very narrow, but Im thinking it might look that way due to the handle being a little larger than most similarly sized knives?
Can you shed some light on this Mark?

Sorry I took the weekend off. :)

Here are the specs so you can get a feel. I had them make it with a descent sized handle so the blade looks skinny in comparison but I don't think it is.

Blade Height:
27.4mm

Thank you sir. That's just about the same as most, good to know.

Thanks Mark. But I've got nothing to compare this 27.4 mm to. Could you compare it to for example, that of the Hiromoto 150 mm petty, the Tohiro DP and/or Suisin Inox? I may be overlooking it, but cannot find their blade height at the side.

Both of those you mentioned are about 29mm tall.
