Hitohira Imojiya MZ VG-1 Petty 135mm Imitation Mahogany Handle
The Imojiya MZ VG-1 line is our budget-friendly series that delivers a great value without skimping on the cutting ability (just look at thinness at the edge in the 4th photo!). The thinness of these knives helps you go through dense root vegetables such as squash, large carrots, and sweet potatoes without much wedging. Just be sure to use gentle cutting pressure and knife techniques that do not involved twisting or aggressive mincing to avoid chipping.
We recommend these blades for any home cooks looking to seriously upgrade cutting ability without breaking the bank. It is also an amazing gift for many folks such as newly wed couples, students moving out, and professional cooks taking on a new venture etc.!
A petty (utility) knife probably gets used most often after your all-purpose knives. It can be used to cut small fruits, vegetables, and even some smaller cuts of meats (any many many more things, like cutting through plastic wrapping from a grocery trip!) If you have one, for a quick meal for two, you may just get it done without a chef's knife.
