PETTY - PARING or UTILITY knife
Petty knives are very similar to the common western paring or utility knives. In small sizes they are similar to the paring knives which often accompany the gyuto knife for paring work or for smaller quantity produce. In medium sizes they are similar to the utility knives, while in large sizes of 150 to 180 mm, they function mostly as fillet knives, for delicate slices of meat or fish (though they are also suitable for multi purpose tasks as well).
While there is no hard rule about where a petty and paring knife diverge or what application each is most adept at, pettys are often considered ideal for small and delicate tasks on a cutting board while paring knives are better employed in hand.
The general sizes range from 90 mm to 180 mm.
