Hi:
What is the blade height of the Moritaka Petty 130mm?
Do the Supreme series and the Aogami #2 the same profile?
Thanks,
Rick

Rick - I have that petty in Blue #2. I'll measure it this evening & let you know. BTW - it's a really nicely made knife, a pleasure to use with a great handle as well.

I have the supreme series and I'm very pleased with it too. The height on my petty is 2.95mm.

STEVE & HORTAS <> How old are your knives?

There is a millimeter difference between these two examples, but this can easily be the difference between a well sharpened knife & a new one. It can obviously also be a variance in individual craftsmanship, but I'm curious if Hortas' knife is new & Steve's has been sharpened quite a bit.

You are correct, mine is quite new and I haven't used it much.

Melampus - I've had mine a few months. I have sharpened it once, but I took as little as possible off the edge and tried to just meet the edge of the factory edge. I think mine's just slightly shorter OOTB.

Have y'all found a universal saya that fits this knife?

Will a 150mm petty saya cut down work?
