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 vide variety of tasks.
These beauties come to us from Miki Hamono located in Miki City Japan. The area is well regarded for its knife making traditions and these knives don't disappoint. Razor sharp out of the box the VG-10 steel holds its edge for a very long time. These knives are very well balanced right at the bolster and are right down the middle in terms of their weight in comparison to others. Nice and thin behind the edge, you won't experience any wedging for quite some time after sharpening these knives.
