Petty knife 16,5 cm


The word petty is likely derived from the French word “petit,” meaning “little,” a nod to the fact that these knives were considerably smaller than the average chef’s knife.

The petty knife is essentially the Japanese version of the utility knife. Following Japanese conventions, the petty knife had a blade that was thinner and harder than the Western knives; the blade itself had a more “triangular” geometry, with a straight, not curved, edge that enabled the sort of up-and-down cutting many Japanese cooks prefer.

Steel in the blade:
X50CrMoV15 is a high/mid-range martensitic stainless steel mainly used in high-quality kitchen knives, it’s high in Chromium, which makes it great for corrosion resistance. The vast chemical composition of X50CrMoV15 makes it a versatile material for knives. Without a doubt, it’s one of the best materials for making chef’s knives.
The near-perfect middle ground makes the steel both tough and durable, not so soft or brittle that it can’t withstand tough use, and not so hard that it’s difficult to sharpen.
