Posted By: salemjThis is an excellent example of the "mini-gyuto" petty. It is the same size and profile as many other petty knives, but the grind and authority of the knife make it feel more substantial than it is. The steel is absolutely terrific. I find myself reaching for this knife to cut and mince a shallot or some garlic, as it actually works as well for mincing as it does for dicing. And I love using it to slice or quarter grape tomatoes. The grind is a little thicker than some other petty knives and it is not as "laser-like" or effortless as some other knives (such as a Konosuke GS petty), but it also feels a bit safer and stronger because of its added heft, and there is no doubt that it gets sharp as all hell and cuts cleanly.
