Kanetsugu Pro S knives have Katana Handle motif of hollow 18-8 stainless steel handles seamlessly fitted to their blades. They are very sanitary, non-slip, comfortable, light weight and well balanced. The blades of the Pro S series have a custom-designed convex blade profile that provides outstanding cutting performance and thin cutting edges, which are suitable for fine cutting tasks. The blades are made from AUS-8 Molybdenum Vanadium stainless steel and are corrosion-resistant, tough, strong and easy to re-sharpen. These characteristics make these knives very suitable for first-time users of Japanese knives, but cost-conscious professionals will also appreciate them.
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 hand 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 the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times.
This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife that has a good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However, it may get rust, if kept in wet condition.
I bought this for my wife. The smaller handle fits her hand very well, and she is very happy with its function and balance. It is a bit too small for my XL hands, but she loves it.
Knife came really quickly, packaged perfectly, looks amazing. Knife sharp as and feels like a dream in the hand, small and well-balanced.
I ordered 3 knives - Kanetsugu Pro S Series Gyuto 240 mm, Kanetsugu Pro S Series PS-03 Santoku 170mm and Kanetsugu Pro S Series Petty 170 mm. All of them are high quality, light, strong, excellent sharpening and comfortable well in the hand. Fast delivery with tracking number. Thank you very much!
Super! Thank you! ‼️
