Description

What kind of knife is this?

Petty knives (Utilty) have a similar profile as the Gyuto but smaller, commonly ranging from 12 to 15cm. A shape most often used next to any larger all-purpose blade (gyuto & santoku) although there are many households where this is the go-to knife. Very suitable for the smaller cutting tasks such as cleaning, portioning and peeling fruits and vegetables and cleaning smaller cuts of meat or fish. 

Pairing knives are more used for in-hand tasks such as peeling, trimming, scoring and cleaning and fruit or vegetable. 

Care Instructions

This is a Semi stainless steel knife. Semi stainless is in between carbon steel and stainless steel, not enough chromium content to be fully stainless but much less fast in oxidising than carbon steel. You can expect semi stainless to be easier in use than carbon, it will oxidise but in a more controlled way than carbon steel. It will in most cases sharpen easier than stainless and responds better to touch ups. It is however still important to store your knife dry and clean, wipe it dry now and again when using, never let it air-dry after washing, no dishwasher and avoid extremely hard products like frozen foods or bones ect.
