A mainstay of professional Western kitchens, the Petty knife is a small general-purpose knife used for peeling, shaping, and slicing fruits and vegetables, chopping herbs, and making garnishes. The compact size and relatively narrow blade of the Petty knife mean that it is very nimble and controllable, thus it is ideal for making precise cuts. Compared to a Western-style handle, the lightweight traditional Japanese handle of the Wa Petty knife moves the balance point of the knife further towards the tip, which makes it feel even more nimble and precise.

Aogami No.2 (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is made by adding Chromium and Tungsten / Wolfram to Shirogami No.2. This results in increased toughness and the production of hard carbide molecules which improve edge retention. Many knife users have noted that while Aogami No.2 is very similar to Shirogami No.2 in terms of edge sharpness, it has slightly superior edge retention.
C 1.05- 1.15 % | Cr 0.2-0.5 % | W 1.0-1.5 %

Kurouchi Finish, the unprocessed (black) part on the top side of the blade has already developed a dark patina, which protects the blade and gives it a traditional Japanese look.

Product features

Handmade Forging

By applying the traditional forging method, the molecules of iron, which is the material, are finely arranged, leading to the completion of a "live kitchen knife" that breathes.

Durability

The process of heating and forging each material for molding is repeated three or four times, and before carbon is released from the steel and the original power is not lost, it is quickly shaped into a blade and creates durability.

Sharpness

The blade is the most important for achieving the best sharpness. Produces uncompromising sharpness that can be sharpened at our own factory with blades.

Handle

We place the highest priority on a shape that is durable, luxurious, easy to grip, and does not get tired even after long-term use.
