Iseya knives are specially hand-made by Mr Yoshinori Seto, crafted from high quality forged Damascus steel using traditional techniques.
The 33-layer Damascus steel used is crafted by hand to ensure the strength of the blade. Damascus steel is one of the strongest, sharpest, most durable and precise materials to use in any professional or home kitchen. It has superior edge retention, sharpness, and is stain resistant.
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.
Do not use the knife to chop hard materials such as bones or frozen items unless the knife is made for that specific purpose. Always ensure you keep your knife clean and dry, and sharpen it as required to prevent a dull edge.
