Carved Wootz Petty 112mm

Big utility in a small package, hand-forged by Peter Swarz-Burt in Hawaii from his homemade wootz carbon steel, this petty chef delivers a unique and beautiful profile for every-day kitchen prep. Light, quick in the hand, and thin along the 112mm / 4.4" edge beneath convex bevels, the tip is quite slim yet strong, perfect for precision slices and utility work, while the 46mm tall heel offers ample height for chopping and versatility. For comfort and control Peter has carved a striking piece of Hawaiian Koa that includes a lighter stretch of sapwood where a beautiful, detailed carving along the lower portion offers grip and a tactile experience. In the front, and also the back in the form of a retention bolt cover, is sculped and polished black micarta.
