Petty knife is most suited for cutting small ingredients, such as lemon, apples and potatoes. Origin of its name comes from French, Petit = small. With larger knifes it is bothersome to prepare side vegetables such as carrots for steak dishes with decorative carvings but it can be done easily with petty knives. It still won’t have any trouble cutting retail size meats and unless it is truly oversized, a petty knife is capable of filleting a fish without any issues. Also, the length of the blade is only 15 centimeters so sharpening it is very easy as well as performing maintenance work compared to other types of knives. For this reason, we recommend it for the first knife to purchase for men or women alike. Petty knife is great for daily use.

Great knife for the price
I wanted a utility knife of some kind to compliment my Miyabi without breaking the bank. Found this to be a great option. Nice blade, great design, and the handle is very nice and comfortable. Definitely recommend.
I have a few Japanese knives of high carbon steel that are my favourites, but the claim of VG10 steel on this blade at this price made it irresistible. The blade came sharp, but I typically sharpen to a higher level. Although I haven't refined the edge yet, I look forward to seeing the results on this blade, as I really like it on some of my pocket knives.
This meat fork (Fleishe Gabel in German) looks awesome and very well-made, just like my oversized Guede Alpha Brot Messer was. I've received several compliments about it already this year, including a "WOW, that's really cool!" from the Made-In store manager in Austin.
Definitely would recommend Guede knives to anyone who wants quality kitchen knives that will last a lifetime and be passed down to the next generation! Ausgutzeichnet (Excellent)!
