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.

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. 

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.

    Great knife, beautiful, great FF and very sharp

    I've used the knife a few times, and i can say the 150mm length is perfect. the knife is gorgeous and sharp. i would recommand to anyone. for the price i was surprised of the fit and finish. I haven't sharpen it but my experience with VG-10 is if you keep at it it's rather easy to sharpen. the damascus pattern is very nice. the damascus pattern if very well seen at a 90 degree or perpenticular angle but subdues as you can to a more inclined view at around 30 degree you hardly see it. not sure if all knifes are like that.

    Not impressed

    It lost its sharpens after a month.



    Dear Gabor We apologize the knife could not stay sharp longer than your expectation. But every knife (even the high-end high price knives) requires the resharpening process. We recommend to sharpen Japanese knives by whetstone. The sharp edge can staylonger and you can maintain the edge by youself. It requires time and practicing, but once you get accustomed to the whetstone hand sharpening, you can understand why this sharpening method has been common and efficient. Here is the sharpening instruction Video from experienced craftsman at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6JA2NVcrOY We hope your Kanetsugu Saiun knife will be your great cooking partner for long time. If you will still have problem or will have any questions, please let us know and help. Happy New Year 2022 ! Best Regards Koki Iwahara KENCREST JCK
