Our online store Petty knife is very similar to the Gyuto knife in profile, with a slight curve at the front edge and a pointed tip. It features a flat heel, making it best for thrust cutting and rock cutting. The Petty knife is very precise, features curves at an acute angle of 10-15 degrees and is ideal for swift dicing of fruits, chopping vegetables and herbs.
Our Petty knife also works well for filleting fishes and slicing soft meat.
The knife features a D-shape, oval or octagonal handle, which is suitable for firm gripping and rapid movements by line chefs. The steel is composed of carbon steel or Damascus steel and is hard compared to other smaller knives.
