Konosuke x Tosho (KT) Petty 165mm Ho Wood Handle
This version of the brand new KT finish is executed by a new sharpener that Konosuke recruited to work on this practical line of chef's knives. Kosuke-san's father hand-wrote the new kanji, which as been laser etched onto the blades. It features a thin convex grind that is reminiscent of the Ashi style grind, yet a bit more generous in thickness behind the edge making it more chip resistant. With the full stainless steel make-up along with the fantastic grind, this blade is perfect for an aspiring home cook or a professional chef looking for a reliable tool (or as a gift!).
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.
