Blade for making a Petty knife
Petty is one of the most popular varieties of Japanese knives - an analogue of the European universal.
The Petty is a multi-purpose knife for a wide range of kitchen needs such as peeling, slicing, etc. Actually, it is used wherever, as a rule, large-sized Gyuto and Santoku are inconvenient. The blade length of a typical Petty can range from 70mm to 150mm. The thickness of the butt can vary within fairly wide limits, as for Japanese kitchen workers (up to 3 mm). Petty can be found both in the traditional version, with one-sided descent, and with double-sided sharpening. As a rule, Petty is not a purely decorative attribute in a set of Japanese knives, but is quite actively used for various operations in the kitchen.
The presented blade from the Blade Compact series for the manufacture of the Petty kitchen knife has a double-sided sharpening. The length of its blade is 95 mm, height 21 mm, thickness in the butt 1.2 mm, the total length of the blade blank with a shank is 135 mm. The blade itself has a three-layer structure. The middle layer is working and is made of VG-1 stainless steel - the starting modification of the well-known brand VG-10, designed specifically for use in the knife industry. The middle layer is hardened to a hardness of 60HRC and provides an incredibly high knife sharpness and resistance to dulling. The blades are made of soft stainless steel, they keep the thin middle layer from breaking, and provide the blade with flexibility. The blade is sharpened and after packing in the handle - completely ready for use.
The Petty Kitchen Knife from the Blade Compact Series is a good kitchen all-rounder that can do most of the work in the kitchen. A very fine sharpening with an angle of less than 10 degrees with zeroing will not allow cutting, for example, frozen foods. But in case you need a razor-sharp knife (for tomatoes, stringy beef, etc.), the Petty knife from the presented blade is what you need.
