This is an odd man out for sure! But one that would find favor in many professional and home kitchens. Combining the ultra-blunt length of a short petty with a tall heel height makes for a blade of multiple uses. This little guy can do so many things that it really is a jack of many trades.

The Yoshimitsu Blue #2 Tall Petty can slice, chop, or cut almost any ingredient while still being small enough for fine work like garnishes and chiffonades. What sets it apart from other paring knives or petties is the blade height of 36mm, which is between 5 and 10mm taller than most other knives of this length.

The five brothers who make up Yoshimitsu make some very nice kitchen knives for us and this is another example of their skills and artisanship. These knives are constructed from Hitachi Blue #2 steel which is then covered in the san-mai style with a soft stainless steel outer layer. The addition of this cladding adds strength to the core steel while aiding with protection and ease of maintenance. The bead blasted lower blade path offers a nice contrast to the polished upper face and edge.

The knife comes with a lovely walnut handle and a black pakka wood ferrule.

    In my restaurant it has been useful for smaller jobs, the wide blade gives a nice stability for cutting and pinch grip while still being narrow enough for typical petty knife work. The finish is ok, the blade is well made and polished, but only to a nice functional finish, the handle is good and big enough for western hands and it has a very good finish. The joint between handle and knife is not perfect, it's stabile but my knife needed a little bit of filler to prevent water from getting in to the handle. The steel is super, and stays sharp. So considering the price this is a really good buy, if you use a little time on the finish it is an excellent knife for a very low price.
