Our favorite sized petty which just seems to fit the Goldilocks rule of "just right". A great sized knife for those jobs where a Santoku is just too big, the handle is a good length and fits comfy in the hand. A joy to use.
Everything about this little knife is a joy. The shape and size of the blade, the wonderful handle which is in scale to the rest of it and the cutting performance of course. All in all it's a lovely little package that performs as well as it looks.

Our aim is to measure and photograph all our products as accurately as possible but due to the handmade nature of many items, please be aware that there may be some variance in the measurements and that things such as blade and knife handle patterns can vary and presentation boxes may differ from those shown but we will always endeavour to provide the most accurate measurements, photos and descriptions of our products.
Some measurements such as HRC are provided by the manufacturer and should therefore be used as a guide.
