From the French petit meaning “small,” the Japanese Petty takes the roll of the Western paring knife or the larger Utility knife. This blade is ideal for peeling and slicing fruits and vegetables, making garnishes, and other detailed food-preparation tasks.
Blade: The fully flat ground blade is made from SUS410 stainless steel clad Aogami Super Blue. The outer layers of tough, stainless steel protect and support the ultra-hard carbon-steel center layer that forms the blade’s edge. The Petty makes an excellent slicer that can handle detailed cutting chores with a handsome machine satin finish with polished edges and distinctive laminate line that gives the knife a high end look.
Handle: The handle is a traditional octagonal shape that is comfortable in multiple grips and made from smooth, Burl G10 for a wood like look. Black G10 ferrules with contrasting white liners lend a more traditional style without compromising performance or comfort. The material is durable, nonporous, heat resistant and easy to clean. The extra weight of the material gives the knife a nice balance during extended use.
Aogami Super Blue Carbon Steel: Japanese high carbon steel produced by Hitachi specifically developed for tools and knives. Highest wear resistance and lowest toughness of the Aogami steel family, Super Blue still easily crushes through chicken bones with appropriate geometry. Can be hardened into the mid-60s HRC. Good edge stability and fine edge holding (~10 DPS).
