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

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.



Takamura Hamono is headed by Terukazu Takamura, a third generation blacksmith who inherited the factory from his father. Their knives are crafted in Echizen, Fukui, the now famous knife making area of Japan. "Refined and elegant" would be the best words to describe the work that Takamura Hamono produces. Their knives are perfectly balanced, finished with the highest level of attention and care, and represent excellent value for money.

Knife Care

This knife is made from a high-carbon, semi-stainless steel and will be robust and resistant to rust. While it will not rust quickly like pure carbon, it is still best practice to not leave this knife wet for extended periods as it's stain-less, not stain-none! A light patina (colouration and seasoning of the steel) will still form over time.

Super cool knife

Very sharp knife and I love the handle

Simon Box
Fantastic knife for the money

This knife is super sharp, light and feels good to use. The edge retention is excellent. You need to dry it carefully as the high carbon core will discolour.

An excellent product for the price

Takamura chromax petty

I just bought this knife relatively out of impulse. I don’t have a petty and I thought to myself it would be nice to have one, and the price of 170 which is absolutely nothing is amazing. These takamura chromax punch well above their price. I love this little knife. Light as ****, amazing fit and finish, excellent grind, and almost 100% stainless. It will be a very convenient little knife that requires almost no maintenance, unlike some of my other knives which have to be oiled after every time I use them due to insane reactivity. If I had my time over again, this would be the exact petty I buy. The performance and price is excellent. You can easily blow 500 on a petty. I’ve always heard good things about the takamura knives, I’d like to try the takamura sg2.

The shipping was super quick (and free). I think it shipped Friday and was here Monday with startrak express. From WA to QLD that’s awesome speed! Thanks
