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. 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.
Our Yoshihiro Inox Petty is forged from a single piece of Aus-10 stainless steel and is complimented with a premium Western style high-grade composite wood handle that extends to the full tang of the knife. It is NSF certified for use in commercial kitchens. With a carbon content of over 1%, the Yoshihiro Inox Stain-Resistant Aus-10 steel knives outclasses most other competitors in edge retention, toughness, and ease of sharpening. This fact makes the Yoshihiro Inox Aus-10 Series the top of its class in high-end stainless steel knives. Japanese knives should always be sharpened and honed on premium quality Japanese water stones.
