We have performed ultrahigh-resolution angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy on graphite single crystal (kish graphite). We have successfully determined the electronic band structure in the close vicinity of the Fermi level and found an extremely small hole-like Fermi surface centered at the K(H) point. We also found a weakly dispersive band near the Fermi level around the K(H) point, which is not predicted by the bulk band calculation. The origin of this anomalous feature is discussed in relation to the electronic states characteristic of the stepped surfaces.
