The Japanese AUS10 petty knife is indispensable for more delicate kitchen tasks – such as removing the eyes from potatoes, peeling fruits and vegetables, or even intricate carving for artistic garnishes. The knife is small enough to use in the hand, but still big enough to use comfortably on a cutting board.
AUS10 is a high-carbon steel, similar to the more well-known VG-10. It’s easier to sharpen than VG-10, so knives made from this steel are suitable for everyone from kitchen novices to professional chefs. This petty knife is made from three layers of cold-forged AUS10 with a very thick core. The cold forging increases the density of the steel’s structure, and combined with the thick core this means the overall toughness of the blade is very high.
The Japanese AUS10 petty knife was designed for use in kitchens where knives are used and abused! This knife will hold a razor-sharp edge and withstand the most demanding conditions.
This AUS10 knife is made in Seki City, Japan. Seki City is well known for the knife making craft, and is often referred to as the knife capital of the world. Nowadays, cities across the world fight for the title, however Seki City is still the champion for any Japanese knives, with the tradition dating back almost 800 years.
