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 couple of Pro-S knives to add to my collection, mainly because I wanted something which I can put to my dishwasher. Once arrived I started to use the knives on my kitchen and I was surprised how good these inexpensive knives are! The steel is basic, but - in many cases I just need a good knife and not need this extreme sharpness of more expensive steels! I’m very happy with pro-S. Very good knife, you get much more than you paid.
It was actually for a gift exchange, but people were fighting for it. Beautiful design and definitely sharp. Kinda wish I got a second for myself.
A little on the light side in the handle, but very comfortable and ergonomic. Blade holds edge very well and as a petty knife is perfect for the job. Very satisfied with it
I bought this knife this 2 other for my girl friend as a first step in japanese knife world, about a year ago. She was'nt use at this intermediat size between offie knife and chef knife. It's now a favourite knife for most of her need. The legance of the handle was a plus to her she use it for any reception. Myself was very surprise from the balance of the knife which is a good intermediate for many use. I recomand it
