This Blade is made from Aogami Super ( Blue Super Steel ) is an improved version of Blue # 1. For Blue Super (Aogami Super or AS) they add more carbon for hardness. The extra Vanadium gives extra toughness and creates smaller carbides. Blue Super is often considered by blacksmiths, to be the best carbon steel for knife making in Japan.

 

Petty

Petty (Paring/Utility) Knife (ぺティ – pronounced: Petti Naifu). It is said to be derived from French ‘petit’ meaning small or little. The Petty Knife is seen as a small Gyuto making it purposeful for any use in the kitchen.

The petty knife is perfect for smaller working surfaces, cutting smaller sized produce if for users with smaller hands. Its comparison to the Gyuto makes it the ultimate small-sized all-rounder and professional cooks prefer it for its compact size and versatility. It can be used to peel, slice, dice, mince and trim a variety of smaller fruits, vegetables, herbs, garnishes and proteins. It is perfect for light butcher work and delicate tasks such as making precision cuts. The blade profile is well suited for thrust-cutting while the belly allows for rock-cutting.

The Petty knife is generally larger than a Western petty knife. Similar to the Gytuo the Petty knife’s heel to belly is quite flat with a rounded profile to the tip. The sharp, double-bevel edge makes this knife ambidextrous and is the perfect companion in a small kitchen with limited workspace or for users with smaller hands.

Care Instructions

  • Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
  • Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
  • Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
  • Never use this knife to cut frozen food.
  • Never twist or cleave the blade.
  • Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on bamboo, glass, marble, slate, a plate, china, marble, arborite or anything harder than steel.
  • Store knives in a way that the blades will not knock into each other.
  • Never transport knives unprotected.
