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.
