. Sometimes called a Utility knife, the Petty is a smaller version of chefs knife but is bigger than a paring knife. The Petty fits in small places that require more dexterity than bigger chefs knives while handling bigger jobs than a paring knife can take care of. The Petty will soon become the go to knife in your kitchen. The difference will be felt right away when a hand forged Japanese Petty knife of incomparable sharpness is used for smaller precision tasks such as peeling, trimming, and slicing small fruits and vegetables to handling bigger tasks as a small chefs knife. A razor sharp Petty knife can intricately carve and style vegetables and fruits for beautiful presentations and garnishes, performing just as well for bigger jobs such as preparing meals. Even the simplest of tasks are elevated with a handcrafted knife that is as beautiful as it is functional.
