Kanetsugu Saiun Series Petty (120mm and 150mm, 2 sizes)

Availability: Normally ships the same day

Saiun Damascus knives have a cutting edge of VG-10 stainless steel that is clad with Damascus (Total of 33 layers; HRc. 60-61) and use Kanetsugu’s special convex edge profile to provide outstanding cutting performance and excellent edge retention. A comfortable black linen Micarta handle accentuated the wood-grain pattern of the Damascus and is shrink-proof, very durable and water-resistant. The stainless steel bolster improves the blade balance and durability and looks stylish next to the red fiber spacer. Kanetsugu use all their passion and experience to make certain that these extremely beautiful knives are still exceedingly practical and cut exceptionally well.

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.

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. 

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.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes, and keep it in dry place.
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab.
  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

Review of Kanetsugu Saiun Series Petty (120mm and 150mm)

I have purchased these knives in 150mm and 120mm sizes. Very nice dinamics when cutting vegetables. I was never able to slice the vegetables so fine until I got the knives. 120mm blade is perfect to cut avocado, berries, garlic, while 150 mm is great to use for cutting onions, paprika, tomatoes, cucumber, etc. I am very pleased with the purchase and the service. Thank you!

Great Looking Knife and Great Service

Great - this was the 2nd time ordering from JCK, and they offer great service and great delivery (very fast - very well packaged). I ordered the 120mm petty knife, and it's a fantastic looking knife. Incredibly sharp, so I also ordered the Magnolia wood Saya at the same time and asked if it can be fitted. Seems to have done the trick as the Saya fits well and will protect the blade (and user!). Will certainly order from here again.

Kanetsugu Petty

I have two Kanetsugu Petty knives, this and a Pro M. Both knives have quite thin blades, which I prefer, and perform admirably. I also purchased a Pro M Gyuto as a gift. The service from JCK has always been reliable and efficient.
