Paring/Petty/Utility Knives, (over 4")

These are very handy knives to have around the kitchen, as they sit right between a small paring knife which can be too small to really chop, slice or dice properly, and a longer slicer or chef knife which can be overkill for the little dicing/trimming jobs. The Japanese "petty" style is generally shaped like a small chef knife, whereas the European "utility" knife generally has a more spear-like shape which is shaped like a short slicer or carving knife. "Sandwich" knives also generally fit into this category, and short serrated versions are often called "sausage" knives by German knife companies (though I find them more useful as small bread knives, for cutting pastries, bagels, croissants and the like).

  • Misono Molybdenum Utility ("Petty") Knife, 4.7-inch (120mm)
    • 29% off

    This makes a perfect addition to a chef's knife or santoku. I find this Japanese style of utility knife much more useful than the standard German utility and paring knife design, as this one has a deeper blade which is shaped more like a small chef's knife, and so you can in fact use it just like a small chef's knife. I use mine all the time at home now for dicing onions, and I can now even do a fine dice of a single garlic clove (I don't like using a garlic press) just like I can an onion -- the Misono utility knife is so thin and sharp and precise, that dicing a garlic clove feels almost as easy as chopping an entire onion! It's also great for dicing ginger and any other small-ish item, and I use it for cleaning up chicken and beef pieces too, where a light touch removes unwanted bits like you're going through butter. An excellent knife! As with all Misono knives, this is for right-hand use only. In beautiful black and white box.

  • Misono Molybdenum Utility ("Petty") Knife, 5.9-inch (150mm)
    • 32% off

    This makes a really nice addition to a chef's or santoku knife. Classic thin and low profile utility knife design, but with the Japanese twist of having more depth at the heel (where the blade meets the handle), so it's shaped almost like a mini chef's knife making even more useful as an all-around kitchen knife in my opinion. Makes an excellent short slicer or "sandwich knife" since at nearly 6" in length, it's practically the size of a short chef's knife or santoku. I use mine at home all the time now to easily and precisely dice onions, garlic cloves, ginger, peppers, and the rest of the usual common key ingredients. I even use it to trim and slice chicken breasts and other boneless meats... I find it just goes through them even more easily and effortlessly than my santoku or chef's knife. It's well made, good looking and affordable -- a great knife! As with all Misono knives, this is for right-hand use only. In beautiful black and white Japanese gift box.

  • Moritaka Deluxe Petty/Utility Knife, 150mm (5.9"), Aogami/Blue #2 Carbon Steel, Octagonal Walnut Handle
    • 22% off

    A great larger utility (petty) knife, hand-made in the Moritaka family workshop in Japan. This makes a great companion to a chef's knife or santoku, and is handy for smaller slicing/dicing jobs like dicing ginger, garlic, onions, small pieces of meat, fruit, etc. At this size, it's basically a small chef's knife, and indeed the shape is the same as a chef's knife, only smaller.

    The blade is made of Aogami/Blue #2 carbon steel, with a permanent octagonal walnut handle and a stainless steel tang. These blades will quickly and easily take a super sharp edge and HOLD it like no stainless steel knife can. The walnut handle should be somewhat longer-lasting than the softer and lighter magnolia wood usually seen on traditional Japanese knives, and the stainless steel tang inside the handle helps resist rust/pitting of the tang inside the handle. The finish is kuro-uchi (black) with a lacquer coating -- this helps protect the steel and should not be polished off. Edge is 50/50 bevel, so it is fine for left or right-handed use, and is easily sharpened with any stone or hone or gadget suitable for Japanese knives.

    For regular everyday maintenance I suggest a fine Idahone ceramic hone (see below). I really love these knives -- I'm sure you'll be thrilled and amazed by the quality, good looks, and high performance of these carbon steel blades, and what an amazing value! Comes packed in a nice box.

    Note: the handle colour may vary, from light to dark. It is made of natural wood, and so variations and imperfections are to be expected and are not considered defects.

    IMPORTANT: Moritaka knives are very sharp and high-performance knives. To achieve this, the edges are ground very thin, and the steel is very hard. This results in a knife that is potentially fragile. As such, CHIPS OR CRACKS TO THE EDGE OR TIP ARE NOT COVERED UNDER ANY WARRANTY. It is the nature of such a knife that it is potentially fragile. If you are a beginner, not confident in your knife handling skills, or looking for an all-purpose knife, do NOT purchase this knife. I love my Moritaka and use it almost daily, but I only use it for precision slicing, dicing, and mincing (great for onions, garlic, ginger, boneless meats) as I’ve certainly chipped edges on other high-performance Japanese knives over the years, so I know it's always a risk. It is important to NOT use a rapid up-down rat-a-tat style chopping motion (where you are smacking the edge down rapidly on the cutting board). While cutting also remember to use good controlled technique -- hard steel will not tolerate "tweaking" (any sideways twisting) and just like any hard material this can result in a chip or crack. You should let the knife do the work, and not lean down and apply pressure to the edge. Cutting surface is also important: only use plastic or maple, NOT bamboo, stone/granite or glass. I also only recommend using these knives with boneless meats and regular veggies (onions, garlic, ginger, etc.) -- never hard/tough materials like root vegetables (turnips, etc.) and certainly nothing where you'd hit a bone. Finally, since they are made of carbon steel, do NOT try to keep the knife shiny. Think of it like a carbon steel crepe pan or a cast iron pan, which both benefit from a "seasoned" finish which will develop a natural yellowish discoloured patina. This is normal and will help protect the carbon steel from rusting. Do not leave these knives in a sink or sitting in water. After use, wash with warm soapy water, dry well, and store in a wooden knife block (do not store in a drawer or on a magnetic knife holder). So in conclusion, yes, this is a high-performance knife, but as with any high-performance tool or machine, this means it requires extra care and skill. A Ferrari will require MORE care, skill and maintenance than a Toyota Corolla, not less.

  • Sakai Takayuki 33-Layer Damascus Damascus Petty Knife, 150mm / 5.9"
    • 27% off

    A utility knife makes a perfect addition to a chef's knife or santoku. This one, at nearly 6 inches in length is basically a short and thin chef's knife. It also excels as a short precision-slicer. I find this Japanese style of utility knife much more useful than the standard German utility and paring knife design, as this one has a deeper blade which is shaped more like a small chef's knife, and so you can in fact use it just like a small chef's knife. I use mine all the time at home now for dicing onions, and I can now even do a fine dice of a single garlic clove (I don't like using a garlic press) just like I can an onion. It's also great for dicing ginger and any other small-ish item, and I use it for cleaning up chicken and beef pieces too, where a light touch removes unwanted bits like you're going through butter.

    These knives really are very sharp, with excellent construction quality and they just look spectacular with the layered steel, hammered finish and gorgeous wood-grain handle (NOT plastic or molded like so many low-cost knives you'll see in stores). The handle is made of Spanish mahogany pakkawood, which has that nice wooden feel and look, but it is impregnated with resin/epoxy so it's very strong and is very water resistant to avoid absorbing water or warping or cracking -- an excellent material!

    If you like the damascus layered steel look but don't like the artificially high prices by domestic knives and kitchen stores, this is a truly excellent choice. You get a super sharp and long-lasting VG-10 steel cutting core (this is a very hard steel and high quality knife steel, with a Rockwell hardness of approximately 60), with a 33-layer hammered stainless steel surface and a beautifully finished handle.

    Approx. weight: 91g

    I'd recommend the fine ceramic hone (see below) for regular/daily maintenance of the edge. As with any knife, use the hone regularly and you'll keep the edge in good shape for a LONG time before you need to think about doing any serious "re-sharpening" or real grinding and refinishing of the edge.

    NOTE: This knife is sharpened 50/50 (equally on the right and left side), so it's easy to maintain and fine for right or left hand use. If you look carefully at the edge, you'll see a slight right-side bias, this is just because the final edge is so tiny and because of the way they finish the edge; it has NO bearing on right- or left-hand use, sharpening or maintenance and can be ignored, so you should treat the edge just like any standard 50/50 edge.

    This knife features a very unique and useful combination of good looks, high-tech steels, the handy petty/utility knife shape, and a traditional Japanese knife handle. The handle is made of a dark walnut wood with a black ferrule. The handle is very lightweight so the overall knife weight is low. The handles are still strong and comfortable, but you'll need to treat this style with respect and keep it clean and dry (NO leaving it in a sink!!)... it won't handle abuse like plastic handles will, and the wood will discolour and take on a nice patina over time which is part of the charm of these handles -- don't expect them to stay pristine.

    The blade is a super sharp and long-lasting Swedish steel cutting core (this is a very hard steel, with a Rockwell hardness of approximately 60), with a unique 45-layer hammered stainless steel surface and that beautiful traditional Japanese handle. This makes an excellent choice as an all-around small slicer or utility knife. Comes in a beautiful box. I'd recommend the fine ceramic hone (see below) for regular/daily maintenance of the edge. As with any knife, use the hone regularly and you'll keep the edge in good shape for a LONG time before you need to think about doing any serious "re-sharpening" or real grinding and refinishing of the edge.

    NOTE: This knife is sharpened 50/50 (equally on the right and left side), so it's easy to maintain and fine for right or left hand use. If you look carefully at the edge, you might see a slight right-side bias, this is just because the final edge is so tiny and because of the way they finish the edge; it has NO bearing on right- or left-hand use, sharpening or maintenance and can be ignored, so you should treat the edge just like any standard 50/50 edge.

  • Sakai Takayuki Aonikou Blue-2 Carbon Steel Utility/Petty Knife, 150mm (5.9")
    • 28% off

    A perfect companion to a chef's knife or santoku. A petty knife is what the Japanese call our "utility" or "paring" knives. If you already own a small utility knife or just don't find that you use them much, and if you want something that can be more versatile and used like a small slicer or "sandwich knife", then this is the perfect length (it's long enough to be used like a small chef's knife or slicer really). It's a superb example of a knife made with a high end carbon steel, so it is VERY sharp, it keeps this sharp edge a long time, and it resharpens more easily than most stainless steels. The handle and blade are beautiful, well made, and expertly finished, with excellent overall fit and finish. But remember, this is a high carbon steel knife, NOT stainless, which means you need to keep it dry and stored in a dry place to keep it from rusting. Wash by hand, wipe, dry and store after use. It is made from the high-end Hitachi Yasugi-works Blue-2 steel which is a very pure high carbon steel with added chromium and tungsten for increased toughness and durability (making it somewhat less fragile than the "white" steels for example). This steel is also called Aogami or Ao-Ko II in Japanese. Hardness is at least HRC 60. This knife is sharpened mostly on the right hand side and so is not suitable for left-hand use. I recommend the fine ceramic hone listed below for regular everyday maintenance. Comes in a beautiful Japanese gift box.

  • Sakai Takayuki Grand Chef Japanese Petty (Utility) Knife 150mm (5.9")
    • 30% off

    Sakai Takayuki Grand Chef Japanese Petty (Utility) Knife 150mm (5.9") Wooden Handle, Water Buffalo Horn Ferrule

    This knife makes a great short slicer, standard utility knife, or sandwich knife. It would make the perfect complement to a chef's knife or santoku. It uses the excellent Grand Chef Swedish AEB-L stainless "super steel" so the blade is hard (HRC of at least 60) for superb edge retention and sharpness, durable, rust-free and easy to maintain, and you get the very useful and standard Japanese style petty (utility) knife shape. But the handle is traditional wooden Japanese-style, and you even get a beautiful water buffalo horn ferrule (bolster). Note that the exact bolster colour will vary... there is normally some variation and marbling which only adds to the natural beauty of the material. This is a very lightweight knife -- the blade is thin, and the handle material (natural wood) is light, so the overall weight is just 52g. This means that it feels even smaller than it really is since it's so light and easy to handle. The blade and edge are expertly finished and VERY sharp. This is a great looking and high performance knife. Highly recommended!

    Note: The edge is ground 50/50, so it's fine for left or right hand use.

    I would recommend the fine ceramic hone listed below for everyday maintenance.

    • 31% off

    Sakai Takayuki Grand Chef Japanese Petty (Utility) Knife 180mm (7.1") Wooden Handle, Water Buffalo Horn Ferrule This knife makes a great short slicer, long utility knife, or sandwich knife, and since it's the same size as a small chef's knife or santoku, yes, it can certainly be used as a small everyday chef's knife (though it's narrow profile since it's still technically a "slicer"). It uses the excellent Grand Chef Swedish AEB-L stainless "super steel" so the blade is hard (HRC of at least 60) for superb edge retention and sharpness, durable, rust-free and easy to maintain, and you get the very useful and standard Japanese style petty (utility) knife shape.

This is the ideal size in my opinion -- it's small enough to use like a standard paring knife, so if you already use a santoku (which is already shorter than a standard chef's knife) or a small chef's knife (say 8"), then I think this is a great length. As with all the Sakai Takayuki knives, I find this a great value, very well made, and with a super sharp, accurate and carefully finished edge.

And when you maintain it, you should concentrate your sharpening and honing efforts on the right side of the blade. Of course if you sharpen both sides you're free to change the edge to a more symmetrical bevel, or even to a left-handed bevel (this is also more easily accomplished quickly and easily if you have an electric knife sharpener with a coarse stage, or a coarse sharpening stone). Or you can bring it to a professional knife sharpening service (a GOOD one that you trust!) who can re-grind the edge however you'd like. A symmetrical right/left bevel (good for left or right hand use) in my opinion really won't diminish the performance much if you maintain it, so that's also a good option if you're left-handed or just want something easier to maintain.

  • Wusthof Classic IKON 4126 Utility Knife, 5.5-inch (14 cm), Serrated - 4126
    • 12% off

    This is a VERY versatile mid-sized serrated knife! Handy for sausages, bagels, croissants, bread rolls, etc. Sure to quickly become a family favourite!

    Not just for sausages! Wüsthof, being a German company, calls this a "sausage knife." Here in North America Wüsthof prefers to call it a "serrated utility knife", since it falls in the larger-than-paring but smaller-than-cook's knife range which is generically called a "utility" size. Me? Living in Montreal (the bagel capital of the world), I like to call it the Ultimate Bagel Knife -- you should see how this baby neatly and easily slices a bagel! I really like this somewhat unusual knife. I think serrated knives generally fell in disfavour here because they came to be associated with the cheap TV junk which was always serrated. The truth is that serrated knives cut really well and are generally a joy to use and tremendously useful and versatile, but if they're not made well to begin with (with a good quality metal that holds its edge like Wüsthof does), then they're essentially worthless when they dull because they're hard to re-sharpen at home. This knife is excellent for slicing rolls, bagels and croissants, and makes short work of hard salami and even the ripest tomato. I love this knife, and it makes a cool gift because it's unusual, useful and fun. Precision forged from a single blank of steel with full tang.

    Features the popular new blade style without bolster, for ease of sharpening, full-blade length performance, and lighter weight. The handle is super-comfortable and made of the same excellent material that the Classic line is made of so it's comfortable and offers good grip even when wet, and it's polished so it looks beautiful and natural at the same time. The metal cap and overall shape also lends true elegance to the shape, and it's incredibly comfortable, no matter what kind of grip you prefer to use (pro-style "pinch grip" or standard grip on the handle). German forged steel quality for a lifetime of use.

This knife is excellent for slicing rolls, bagels and croissants, and makes short work of hard salami and even the ripest tomato. I love this knife, and it makes a cool gift because it's unusual, useful and fun.

    NOTE: This is a version specifically for lefties. It has the serrations on the left side.

    Not just for sausages! Wüsthof, being a German company, calls this a "sausage knife." Here in North America Wüsthof prefers to call it a "serrated utility knife", since it falls in the larger-than-paring but smaller-than-cook's knife range which is generically called a "utility" size. Me? Living in Montreal (the bagel capitol of the world), I like to call it the Ultimate Bagel Knife -- you should see how this baby neatly and easily slices a bagel!

  • Wusthof Classic Utility Knife, 6-inch (16 cm) - 4522-16
    • Free
    • 15% off

    Ideal companion to a Chef's knife. A very useful all-around utility/slicer knife for meat, fruit, and vegetables. This size and type of knife sits comfortably between a larger chef's knife and full-size slicer. Wusthof calls it a "sandwich" knife, but most people would simply consider it an all-purpose larger "utility" knife. Pretty handy-dandy when you just want a good knife for a quick job without the bulk of a chef's knife. Same comfortable and nearly indestructible grip and razor-sharp hardened stainless steel edge as the rest of the classic line. Forged German steel quality for a lifetime of use.

  • Wusthof Classic Utility/Slicer Knife, 6.3-inch (16 cm), Euro-Style, Granton Edge - 4139
    • Free
    • 13% off

    Another somewhat unusual but in my mind extremely useful all-around utility/slicer knife. A knife like this one quickly becomes a favourite "go-to" knife for those many everyday tasks where a paring knife is too small and the chef's knife is overkill. The hollows ground into the face of the blade create a super-sharp edge and form an air pocket which prevents extra thin or soft slices from sticking to the blade. Perfect for slicing beef and cutting fruits and vegetables. Same comfortable and nearly indestructible grip and razor-sharp hardened stainless steel edge as the rest of the classic line. More German forged steel quality for a lifetime of use!

    Wusthof calls this a "sandwich knife". Here it's commonly known and used as a "utility knife". It's basically a nice all-purpose small-ish slicer (notice it has the same part number as the slicers and carving knives below, except that it's shorter). The thin blade makes it great for carving/slicing meats, vegetables, fruit, and yes, even sandwiches ... or maybe it's a "sandwich" knife so you can use it to prepare things to put INTO your sandwiches? Either way, a handy and popular knife for a growing collection.
