SG2 Wide Petty Matte 140mm (5.5")
Best To Use
(click on icons for more knives)
A new addition to our SG2 series crafted in the Suncraft smithy is the Wide Petty knife. Wide Petty will nicely complement the larger of our two SG2 Bunkas, the SG2 Bunka Matte 200mm (7.9") as a smaller knife for the jobs where the bunka is too large and clumsy.
At 140mm (5.5") blade length, the blade is perfect for more delicate and freehand tasks where a larger knife would perhaps prove too unwieldy. Due to the wider blade profile (33 mm / 1.3"), it can be also used on the cutting board (think of it as a very small santoku knife). Petty can be used for peeling, paring, decorating, coring apples, removing eyes in potatoes, chopping herbs, mincing garlic, and similar tasks. It is a knife you should absolutely consider adding to your collection.
This petty is made of SG2/R2 powder steel, hardened to around 62-63 HRC. Powder steels are currently the hardest steels available for knife making, which means the knife will keep a smooth and sharp edge for an extremely long time. Due to the high content of chromium (Cr) in its steel structure, it is also incredibly easy to maintain. The composition and microstructure of the steel provide extremely fine and smooth sharpness.
The knife features a matte, unpolished finish with a very pronounced line at the bottom of the blade. Forged with a common “sandwich” method called san-mai, this line indicates the border between the two softer, outer layers of steel, and the strong SG2 core steel, seen exposed at the very edge of the blade. We love the geometry and the wider profile, so we recommend it to all cooks, regardless if you are a professional chef or a passionate home cook.
The handle attached to the SG2 Wide Petty Matte followed the same logic as the blade - universal and easy to maintain. A beautiful, dark brown, octagonal-shaped pakka wood handle sits well in your hands regardless if you are left- or right-handed. Pakka wood is a mixture of laminated wood and epoxy resin which is highly durable and will not get stained easily.

I ordered “home professional sharpening set”, the quality of the products and packaging was really good.
The delivery was really fast (2 days to Portugal) and everything was perfect.
I will purchase more items from Sharp Edge shop!!
Ordered two times from the shop (first time the Black Bunka Damascus 160, second time a variety of sharpening stones). Ordering process was easy and shipping was extremely fast both times (2 days across europe is a miracle these days!). Had a question afterwards and got answers from customer service within half an hour in the evening. What else can you ask for?
I will definitely keep an eye on the shop and the offered products and for sure there will be a third order (and a fourth, and a fifth.....).
The knife arrived quickly (to New Zealand), razor sharp, & with a beautiful custom handle fitted by Sharp Edge. For quality, looks, balance, and feel, Japanese knives are on another level and this is no exception. The craftsmanship and pride with which these knives are made is unequalled anywhere in the world.
Todo perfecto, buen cuchillo y envío muy rápido
I had wanted this knife for a while now (Takamura VG10 130mm) and couldn't find it anywhere until I found the online shop of SharpEdge! The delivery only took 3 days, despite me living in Germany!
It's already my favorite knife in my kitchen!
The knife is not razor sharp OOTB, but after a few strokes on 3K and 8K became scary. Great performance and super comfortable though the handle is not a typical Wa one. After all is a Takeshi Saji....
Excelente cuchillo y envío rápido, genial como siempre, hasta la próxima compra!
Love it!. Razor sharp, cuts like .a dream! Mate got the whole set!. He loves them too.' Love Hap 40 blades!. Have a few & when i saw this knife just had to have it!. Very happy customer!
Good service and friendly people. Fast express shipping I will buy her again for sure.
Received excellent service from Sharp Edge. Quick to reply and very helpful. Delivered on time to Australia. Excellent products.
I have by now ordered 2 different knives, and recieved the knives superfast each time. Its a pleasure to deal with Sharpedge, and the knives are simply beautiful made, and incredibly sharp😊👍
Completely as advertised. The knife is razor-sharp out of the box. The handle is long enough to be comfortable despite being a relatively small knife overall. It's well-balanced and the handle is spectacular. A functional work of art!!!
How to describe their job : incredible !
The team are always here to help, giving their advices following our needs, give answer to our question. They answer to our mail within 24h and are very kind and available.
It’s a real pleasure to order through their website. They have such a great Japanese knives line with different Japanese craftsmen.
I ordered two times from them with an excellent services.
I live in France and I was also pleasantly surprised to receive my orders within 24 hours, so the delivery service is also of great quality.
When I had a trouble with my handle they told me how to repair it. When I wasn’t able to do it by myself they just sent me a new one without any charge.
Just go for it !
The team at Sharp Edge carries an exceptional line of Japanese knives and provides excellent and responsive customer service. I've upgrading some of my Western knives to higher-quality Japanese knives and recently purchased the HAP-40 Petty Black 135mm (5.3") [Tottori Sand]. It's really a work of art, highly functional, and razor sharp out of the box; this particular knife is really too nice to take to a commercial kitchen, where I grew up, but a real treat at home where you can take better care of it. Sharp Edge also carries knives that are a bit less fussy and would do well in commercial use and are great cost-effective solutions. Many traditional Western-style knives with smaller blades inevitably come with much smaller handles that are difficult to grasp, but the traditional octagonal Japanese handles are especially welcome in that regard.
Amazing customer service!
Very fast delivery!
