Product Description

About the Petty

Sometimes called a utility knife, the Petty is a smaller version of chefs knife but is bigger than a paring knife. It is designed for home cooks to intensify pleasure from cooking. The Petty fits in small places that require more dexterity than bigger chefs knives while handling bigger jobs than a paring knife can take care of.

Its incomparable sharpness is used for smaller precision tasks such as peeling, trimming, and slicing small fruits and vegetables as well as for handling bigger tasks as a small chefs knife. A razor sharp petty knife can intricately carve and style vegetables and fruits for beautiful presentations and garnishes, performing just as well for bigger jobs such as preparing meals.

It is an ideal alternative to Gyuto for people with smaller hands. Its double bevel makes it perfect for both left and right-handed use. The Petty will soon become the go to knife in your kitchen.

 

About the handle

The beautiful handles are made with extremely limited European Maple Burl dyed in green and blue. The wood is dried for two years before it undergoes the process of stabilisation and colour dying. This ensures the wood is completely waterproof to avoid bacteria growth and is able to last generations. The stabilised premium-cut maple burl is cut into the octagonal shaped ambidextrous handle, giving you a firm grip on the knife. 

Not only are the handles aesthetically pleasing, they are also light. This allows for maximum precision and more controlled movements during use. After all, maple wood is known for being a strong and durable wood with good resistance to decay. Overall, the knife is perfectly balanced and very light.

 

Timeless

Nothing about Sakai Kyuba is left to chance. It has been designed, forged and rigorously tested to serve your family for generations. Made from the highest quality V10 46-layer Damascus hammered stainless steel – sturdier and sharper than anything you have experienced before. Presented in a natural-coloured pinewood box for safe storage and keeping. Backed by a lifetime guarantee.

 

Craftsmanship

Although inspired by 1000 years of tradition, each of the Sakai Kyuba blades is absolutely unique. Every single one has been meticulously handmade and perfected in Japan by Sakai’s  (堺市) master blacksmith.  Forged with Damascus steel – legendary for its plasticity, hardness and distinctive patterns. Handle and blade satin-finished to a subtle, yet stunning lustre. Crafted, not manufactured. No handle pattern is the same, guaranteeing you a unique piece of craftsmanship.

Maintenance

Like most equipment, knives need a little love and care. You need to sharpen them regularly and depending on the type of steel, dry them immediately after use. These are 3 general rules you should follow:

      1. Don’t put your knife in a dishwasher, ever.
      2. Store your knives either on the magnetic knife stripknife stand, or sheathed in the utensil drawer.
      3. Don’t slide your knife, blade down, across the cutting board to clear away what you just chopped.

Also, check our full guide on how to properly maintain the knife and sharpen it.
