Petty Knife 150mm (5.9") #7251
The Petty Knife is light and thin with a bit of flex to it and is used for peeling, chopping and trimming. Not used in a hammer grip way meaning you don’t chop up and down like a chefs knife due to not having enough clearance for the knuckles. Mostly used for cutting away from the chopping board but is essential for any knife roll and home kitchen. The general size of a petty ranges from 95mm to 150mm but can go up to 180mm but this is considered to be in a slicing categories.
The 45 layer has been one of the most popular knives in the Sakai Takayuki range, it has a very classic Japanese look and is very light in the hand due to the Wa handle it has a AUS - 10 steel core with 45 layers of hammered damascus steel layered over the top on both sides. Like all Sakai Takayuki knives this is absolute value for money and would be a work horse in any chef’s knife case.
