Petty knives are great for all the little things: Chopping shallots and garlic, mincing herbs and butchering small proteins. They function perfectly as a line knife as well as they're nimble, don't take up much space but can still accomplish a wide variety of tasks.
Kaishin knives are forged by a small group of blacksmiths in Tosa city, Japan. We're a big fan of these knives as we feel they offer great value for your money. Made from beautiful steel they have a rustic feel and are quite light even when compared to other Japanese knives.
