The 15cm Mcusta Zanmai Supreme Ripple petty knife is a real all-rounder. It is ideal for cutting fruit and vegetables, paring meat and cutting smaller or medium sized pieces of meat.

Its small size gives you complete control over the tip and edge of the blade.

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.
