An incredible high polish patterned finish unique to every knife makes this beautiful range stand out a mile.
Pettys are great for those little fiddly jobs and are perfect where chopping space is at a premium. This is the larger of the two pettys we sell in the Shizuku range.
There are some jobs where a smaller blade is called for, peeling fruit, segmenting an orange, carving meat off a small chicken. All involve an amount of "fiddliness" which although you could probably make do with a Chef's knife if you had to, it is just much nicer and safer to do with a smaller blade.

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.
