The Yamashin White #1 Petty is a great all-purpose knife made from the much liked Aogami #1 high carbon steel. This steel is used a lot in the manufacturing of kitchen knives due to its higher carbon content. This results in the best edge retention of the white steels and also the best ability to hold an acute angle. The inner core of Aogami #1 is clad in a softer iron with a great looking kurouchi finish, which helps to protect the carbon blade from rust and corrosion. This is a san-mai style blade, meaning that the cladding covers both sides of the core steel but does not wrap over the top.

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.

The handle and bolster are very well executed. The medium sized handle is made from walnut with a black pakka wood ferrule and it has a really comfortable feel. This is a great knife with some serious bang for the buck attributes.
