Here is a lovely petty that will make a great addition to anyone’s knife roll or block. It is made from 52100 steel by ABS Journeyman Bladesmith Steve Grosvenor. He works in his forge located in South Dakota and we are really pleased to be representing him here at CKTG.
52100 is a steel developed to make roller bearings, an application requiring a steel that is perfectly homogenous and fine grained. For this reason, 52100 is made with a lot of care, usually using vacuum or protective gas melting methods. It is a high carbon, chromium steel containing low alloy steel that exhibits excellent strength and fatigue properties. It is a very highly regarded alloy which has the nickname "the Cadillac of steels" in the roller industry. 52100 also makes an excellent knife blade as a mono steel construction or it can be san-mai welded with other steels. Steve uses a stock removal method to form this blade and hardens the steel to 62 HRC.
115mm long petty knives occupy the lower end of the size scale and are the perfect in-hand blades for use in many tasks and preparations. The taller than usual profile affords greater clearance for on board work while keeping the handle further away from the item when cutting in hand.

CKTG is at heart a small business so the service is personal. They are one of the rare companies that actually dispatch the order the same day as receiving it and provide tracking information. It is great to deal with an individual by name and it’s evident that they take pride and love in what they do.
Had a problem with one of the products and they went out of their way to resolve. I would highly recommend dealing with this company. It’s nice to find a company who cares and they will get me as a return customer.
Mark is great at answering questions for knife nuts of all levels. His service is second to none. Really appreciate the time he puts into every email as well as the free forum he hosts.
Great experience working with Chef Knives to Go. Quick delivery, and they are great about returning emails. I'm actually waiting on my second knife from them. I'm sure there will be more to come.
Loved the instructional videos on the website.
Great service and quick shipping. Best selection of Japanese knives around. I recommend this site to all of my fellow culinary professionals!
