Our Special Craftsman Team specializes in making only the highest-grade of Japanese traditional-style knives, which can only be produced using time-consuming hand work and extraordinary attention to detail during every step of hand making.
The blade is made from solid Swedish stainless steel (HRc. 60), which is well known for its purity and fine grain structure. The combination of this steel and the finely sharpened blades of the knife, mean they are particularly good for precise or detailed cutting tasks.
Japanese traditional-style octagonal handle is made from magnolia wood, and have a water buffalo horn ferrule. Each knife also includes a matching magnolia wood Saya (“Sheath”) for safekeeping.
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.

This knife comes with 50/50 double bevel edge geometry for both right and left handed use.
For your information, Japanese Kitchen knives are generally designed for right handed use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened 50/50 without problems.
We believe quality and performance of Japanese knives are best in the world and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and spirits from your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife can be your special cooking partner for long time.
This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife, which has good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However even stainless steel blade kitchen knife has rust situation if you leave it with wet condition.
This knife seems analogous to more popular products such as Ashi/Gesshin Ginga in grind and F&F. It's a delight to use in delicate, smaller tasks and I find myself leaving it next to the cutting board regularly as it fits so many tasks.
A nice little Petty knife. I bought the 150mm version. Lightweight like a feather - kinda feels like the Masamoto KS Petty, but with 150mm just a tad shorter... The Octagonal handle is nice too. Good steel, attains a good sharpness and is easy to resharpen. Would buy it again. (On the picture its already used)
