The Blue Steel #2 high carbon steel core, with an HRC of 63-64, provides an extremely sharp edge that is able to maintain its sharpness over extended period of time. The stainless steel cladding allows much of the blade to be more forgiving to exposure of water while still having the superior edge retention and sharpness intact.

Sometimes called a utility knife, the Petty is a smaller version of a 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.

The stainless steel cladding allows much of the blade to be more forgiving to exposure of water while still having the superior edge retention and sharpness intact. With its handmade Japanese style rosewood handle with double bolster equipped with a protective wooden sheath called a "Saya," which protects the knife and adds to its appearance when not in use. This specific Saya included with the knife is brush coated with non-toxic lacquer coating made from organic tree saps in Japan. The Lacquered Saya encases each knife and adds to its appearance when not in use.

Care & Sharpening: Traditional Japanese knife making values a sharp edge, which requires attention and care. Sharpening and honing should be done with only water whetstones.
