Tojiro Petty Damascus 150mm knife is a versatile knife for both home and professional use. Petty knife, sometimes also referred as paring or utility, is a smaller version of the Gyuto (Chef's knife), and is used for all sorts of delicate tasks where a larger knife would be unwieldy. Petty knives are used for peeling, paring, decorating, cutting out cores of apple quarters, removing eyes from potatoes, etc.
This petty knife is part of the Tojiro's Pro DP Damascus knife series, featuring a popular VG-10 core steel, clad into 37 layers of softer Damascus steel. Damascus pattern formed on the blade is called “Kasumi- Nagashi” and belongs into the group of traditional Japanese Kasumi patterns.
☝️ Please note that the Damascus pattern on this knife is not as pronounced/visible as with other knives on our website.
A durable and fairly light stamina wood handle is used, allowing for an ergonomic and fatigue-less grip. It features a stainless bolster and three rivets for a secure handle fixation, reducing the possibility for cracks in the handle.
