Made in Japan.
Larger than a paring knife and smaller than a chef's knife, the Shun Blue Petty is the ideal for medium-sized tasks. It nimbly cleans silver skin from tenderloins and portions boneless proteins with ease. The Shun Blue Petty is just the right size for sectioning citrus, from a large grapefruit to a smaller lime. Use it in hand to peel a potato, but then use the same knife to slice the potato for au gratin. The longer blade means it's handy for board work, yet provides additional knuckle clearance. It beautifully stems and seeds peppers, shaves garlic, and makes itself generally useful for any task that requires accuracy, agility, and efficient cutting.
The Shun Blue Petty is part of the Shun Blue line, developed in partnership with award-winning chef, Chris Cosentino. Internationally renouned for his "nose-to-tail" cooking philosophy, Chef Cosentino chose traditional Japanese blade shapes that are essential for preparing the proteins for which he is so well known, as well as a selection of all-purpose tools every kitchen needs. These exciting knives feature a carbon steel cutting core for a razor-sharp edge and quick re-sharpening. For easier care, the "blue" carbon steel core is sandwiched between two layers of mirror-polished stainless steel. But note that these knives will need additional care to protect the edge from rust. The beautiful grey PakkaWood handles are a variation on a traditional Japanese design modified to meet the chef's demands for secure and comfortable grip. The Shun Blue line makes this selection of classic Japanese culinary knives available to professionals and avid home cooks in the West.
Includes traditional Japanese wooden saya, or sheath.
