The KAI Seki Magoroku Composite 15 cm Petty is between a chef’s knife and a paring knife, but its blade is narrower and straighter.
is ideal for a multitude of small tasks where more precise cuts are
needed, such as trimming broccoli, green beans, or other smaller
Some cooks like to use it in their hand, too—almost like a large paring knife. Others like its smaller size as an alternative to the chef’s knife. Its very slightly curved belly enables it to do moderate rocking cuts. It’s nimble enough to peel an onion in hand, then slice it up in short order.
Petty knives are very similar to the common western paring or utility knives. 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 Kai Seki Magoroku Composite blades are the epitome of Japanese elegance. What stands out is the distinctive copper-coloured line on the blade. This indicates the separation of the two steel types being used in these blades.
The beautifully finished blade is made from the combination of two different steels, creating a fascinating contrast between the mirror-polished blade and the satined opposite site.
The mirror-polished core of the blade is made from VG MAX Steel with a hardness of 61±1 HRC and the satined outer material from SUS420J2 steel, a softer alloy which adds flexibility, high corrosion resistance and the long-lasting performance of these blades.
A subtle, middle copper layer adds antibacterial resistance and an extra special touch.
The knife features a light brown pakkawood (wood plastic composite material) symmetrical handle.
The handle shows a composite structure of different kinds of wood, just like the blade. The result is a strong and stabilized handle that, even though it is man-made, looks very natural.
The shape of the handle looks like a kind of fusion between the well-known European forged bolster and the traditional Japanese D-grip.
Made for both left-handed and right-handed users, the handle merges into the bolster seamlessly, creating a light dynamic look.
Handcrafted in Japan with a lifetime warranty.
