Blade Type

The Petty knife, a quintessential tool in Japanese cuisine, is a smaller utility knife used for precise, delicate tasks. Often considered a smaller sibling to the chef's knife, it excels in hand-held tasks like peeling, trimming, and intricate cutting. Its versatility makes it an essential for detailed culinary work.

Steel Type

ATS34 is a unique, high end Japanese knife steel which is becoming more and more popular. It resembles Blue 2 in its composition yet due to the added chromium content, is more resistant to corrosion than carbon steel. In this aspect it is similar to Chromax or SKD, but has a relatively high hardness of around HRC63, meaning it will hold an edge for an extremely long time.

Recommended Maintenance

Store it in a dry environment using magnetic strips, knife rolls, or sayas. Avoid hitting hard or frozen objects and twisting the blade while cutting. These knives are not dishwasher safe. Clean with hot water and a soft cloth, and dry immediately after use to prevent rust spots on the high carbon steel. For more information please read the blog below.



Embracing a rapid rise in popularity for his unique designs and committment to striving for perfection, Shunsuke Manaka is the man behind Kisuke knives. From the sketchbook to the kitchen, he is the sole craftsman behind the entire knifemaking process. Shunsuke engineers these knives using a process known as Warikomi, whereby a glowing hot piece of steel is split, and the core steel is wedged in and forged together. The split steel becomes the outer layers, and the core steel is exposed at the edge. This process produces a stronger, tougher more durable blade.

Knife Care

This knife is made from a high-carbon, semi-stainless steel and will be robust and resistant to rust. While it will not rust quickly like pure carbon, it is still best practice to not leave this knife wet for extended periods as it's stain-less, not stain-none! A light patina (colouration and seasoning of the steel) will still form over time.
