The Petty is the ultimate kitchen utility knife. It has been said that in order to survive in the kitchen you really only need two kitchen knives - a paring knife and a chef knife. The Fusionwood Petty utility knife challenges that notion. 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 style is a favorite among professional chefs as a result of its versitility.  

This is everyones favorite knife.  Chef's use it as their do everything else knife and homeusers who aren't comfortable with a larger knife use it for everything.  This knife makes an excellent gift.

What is a utility knife for the kitchen? Basically, there are 2 knives any chef needs- a chef knife and a paring knife. A utility knife lives in between those knives.

The Americanologists, "The blade was razor-sharp and cut through the meat like 'Buttah' as we say in these parts."

Joe W. (Henrico, VA.), " (The Petty's) razor sharpness, large, comfortable handle and feather weight have drawn comments from young and experienced cutters alike. From rolling out a boneless pork loin for stuffing to fluting mushrooms, the Petty makes short work of it."
