Prestige 5.5" Petty/Utility
The Petty or Utility knife - a smaller, general purpose knife for the kitchen.
With a generous, rounded handle, a rounded spine and finger guard/choil - this knife can be used all day. This functional kitchen tool has brass pins with a mosaic pin and a tough-as-nails black Micarta bolster up front with a carbon-fibre pin. The main part of the handle is in beautifully burled Maple wood that has been stabilized and dyed in-house. The stabilizing process impregnates the wood with an extremely durable resin - this makes the wood virtually impervious warping or cracking, water resistant and a lot more hard-wearing than natural wood. It has a fine geometry from spine to edge and is sharpened to 17 degrees at the edge.
Perfect for folks who prefer smaller and lighter knives!
