The Petty is the ultimate kitchen utility knife. In order to survive in the kitchen, they say you really only need two kitchen knives: a paring and a chef. The G-Fusion Petty utility knife challenges that notion by taking on both roles. This classic Japanese blade shape works great as a peeling, paring, boning and carving knife for vegetables, fruits, herbs and other delicate work. However, it will also take on some of the slicing and dicing jobs of a large chef knife. This versatile style is a favorite among professional chefs.  

This is everyone's favorite knife. It's a do-everything-else knife for pros and the go-to knife for home users who aren't comfortable with a larger blade. The perfect gift for a cook no matter their ability.

What is a utility knife for the kitchen? In between the two essential knives for any chef - a chef knife and a paring - is a utility knife. Learn more about utility knives and why they are essential to both the professional and home kitchen here: About Kitchen Utility Knives.
