Petty & Paring knives are small utility kitchen knives perfect for small proteins, fruits, and vegetables.

This blade is made of Shirogami #1 (White Steel #1) with excellent sharpness and durability.  White steel has increased carbon content and reduced impurities, making for an incredible blade and increased hardness, similar to ancient katana. With few impurities and a high carbon content, this type of knife can have excellent sharpness and is easy to re-sharpen. 

This blade needs to be cared for more than stainless steel as it will rust easier, water should be removed immediately. 

This knife maker is from the Ibaraki Prefecture outside of the Tokyo region. With two master blacksmiths,Isamitsu is a smaller company focused on unique handcrafted designs using high quality materials.  They design their knives with high carbon steel such as Aogami Super (Blue Super Steel), shirogami (white steel #1), and aoniko (blue steel #2) along with locally sourced wood such as maple and burberry. 

*Please do not cut bone or frozen food. It may cause the knife to chip or other damaged.
