In Japanese knife making, the "Petty Knife" is a play on the French 'Petit' meaning a small, double ground utility blade. Handcrafted in the authentic Japanese style by our artisan knifemakers, our 6” Petty Knife gives you the perfect blade for detailed cutting or quick kitchen tasks.


Equally at home in the hands of a professional chef or a home cook, you’ll love having a knife that stays sharp, cuts with precision, and is easy to sharpen and maintain.


Crafted with core VG10 steel for years of use, our 6” Petty Knife is made with the signature karouchi blacksmith finish of our forge, protecting the inner steel layers and making it easier to glide through and release foods when slicing.


The 6” Petty Knife Features:

  • Handcrafted construction true to Japanese design

  • Durable VG10 High Carbon Japanese stainless steel core with SanMai soft steel cladding for durability and a lifetime of performance 

  • Kurouchi blacksmith finish 

  • Octagonal Rosewood handle, comfortable in any size hand, lefty or righty

  • The Ferrule is hand shaped sustainably and local-to-the-forge sourced Ox horn

  • You want a versatile knife for quick, small tasks usually reserved for a paring knife

  • You need a knife that can stand up to daily use and is easy to sharpen
