Petty knives are a smaller blade mainly used for slicing or chopping veg, meat, herbs, or perhaps even filleting a fish. A vital knife for when a Gyuto (all-purpose chef's knife) is too big. Blades are the same profile as a Gyuto, but are normally between 120mm and 150mm, with the smaller blades being used for peeling or removing ends off the chopping board.
