Rosewood Petty 165mm

Handmade in Brooklyn, NY by Matthew Rubendall of Ruby Knives, this 165mm / 6.5" petty chef knife in hand-sanded 52100 carbon steel offers an incredibly versatile and usable French-style blade profile in a lightweight, simple and attractive package, perfect for large kitchens, or Brooklyn-size kitchens. Very thin behind the hair-popping edge for precise and effortless slices, the distal taper of the blade thins progressively towards the ultra-fine and razor-sharp tip; an inch short of it, the rounded, polished spine measures just 0.9" wide. The handle, slim, subtly tapered, and very comfortable, is faceted on all sides to create an octagonal profile, and consists of layers of Honduran Rosewood and white oak, with stainless steel pins, and a tapered tang in the center. A custom made rosewood, maple, and cedar saya with turned steel pin is included.
