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.
