Blade Type

The Petty knife, a quintessential tool in Japanese cuisine, is a smaller utility knife used for precise, delicate tasks. Often considered a smaller sibling to the chef's knife, it excels in hand-held tasks like peeling, trimming, and intricate cutting. Its versatility makes it an essential for detailed culinary work.

Steel Type

Japanese White Steel #2, a traditional high-carbon steel, is cherished for its purity and fine grain structure, enabling razor-sharp edges, at the cost of being reactive. It is one of the easiest steels to sharpen, but cannot be left wet for even short periods otherwise rust spots can occur. If you’re fastidious in your knife maintenance, this knife can steel can be extremely rewarding to use.

Recommended Maintenance

Store it in a dry environment using magnetic strips, knife rolls, or sayas. Avoid hitting hard or frozen objects and twisting the blade while cutting. These knives are not dishwasher safe. Clean with hot water and a soft cloth, and dry immediately after use to prevent rust spots on the high carbon steel. For more information please read the blog below.

Knife Care

This knife is made from a high-carbon steel and as such, will require a little more care than a regular off-the-shelf knife. It must be dried shortly after use, as prolonged exposure to moisture can cause rust spots to appear. A very light coat of oil during storage also helps to prevent rust spots. A patina (colouration and seasoning of the steel) will occur with use.
