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