Hitohira STK V10 Petty 135mm Rosewood Handle
The STK line has got so much going for it; full stainless steel for ease of maintenance, both Damascus AND hammered finish as well as a beautiful dark wood handle. The edge is thin enough to not wedge terribly on hard root vegetables such as sweet potatoes, but more durable than some of our more performance-focused blades such as T10 Tsuchime series.
We recommend the STK line for cooks looking for a balanced, easy-to-care-for blades with both performance and aesthetics in mind.
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 (and 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.
