Collection: Petty & Utility Knives

The utility knife is a small all-purpose knife that can be used for any task that requires a bit more finesse than a full-sized chef's knife. The petty knife is its Japanese counterpart. While the petty knife is typically a bit smaller and harder, the two names are often used interchangeably. Utility knives are sometimes offered with a serrated blade to facilitate cutting difficult items like bread and tomatoes.
