Murato Fit-Line Petty (Utility) Knife 130mm

$46.05 $65.75

The Fit series Petty (Utility) Japanese kitchen knife, like its bigger brothers, the Gyuto (chef) and Santoku (general purpose) kitchen knives, is a joy to use. Thanks to its quality design, it only weighs 85gm, making it perfect for its role in the kitchen. 

With its 130mm blade, many women, my wife included, will find themselves using this knife for most of the prep work they do in the kitchen. I have used this knife myself to prep a range of ingredients for a few different meals and the results were fantastic.
