Gihei Blue #2 Petty 170mm.
Petty knives are small utility knives of Japanese design. They can vary significantly in both profile and size, going from 75mm to 210mm. Petty knives are very similar to the common western paring or utility knife and are adept at many small and detailed cutting tasks. They also excel at preparing garnishes and other artistic endeavors.
We love the way that Atsushi Hosokawa and his associates use the best steels and techniques. Partnered to the fine blade is a lovely semi-custom Ho wood oval handle. Sweet looks, great performance, and a fair price combine to make this versatile petty a great value.
