【What is Petty knife?】
Petty knife is a small kitchen knife to pare. Originally it was used for cutting fruit/peeling vegetables, but nowadays it is often used as a petit ‘all-purpose’ knife not only for fruit/veggies, but also for meat and fish. It is also good for kids as a children's knife as Santoku is too big for them.

【 High Speed Powdered Steel (R2) 】
High speed powdered steel is definitely one of the first class steel for kitchen knives.
The edge retention is longer than most of other steels. And it has the high resistance to rust.The middle of the layered steel is hard one, but the ones on its edge is soft. In this way, you can easily sharpen the blade.
