Developed in Japan in the late 19th century with influence from the European utility knife, the petty knife is a small blade that is perfect for vegetables and other fine work. The Sha Ra Ku Mono petty knife is shorter and more agile than most traditional petty or utility knives, making it comparable to a large paring knife.


The Sha Ra Ku Mono petty knife is most useful for paring fruits and vegetables. The gently curved blade, much like the chef’s knife, can also be used for slicing meat and for chopping small produce.


Sha Ra Ku Mono blades are forged from molybdenum-vanadium alloy stainless steel, which finely balances edge retention, toughness, and corrosion resistance. This material is slightly softer than the VG-10 steel used in other Tojiro knives and significantly harder than European knife steels.

The handle is made from hollow 18/8 stainless steel, crafted with the blade as a single piece. Much like a traditional wooden wa handle, its light weight keeps the knife's balance farther forward than on European knives. The ergonomic shape allows it to be gripped either by the handle or with a more versatile pinch grip.
