Item Description

Gift Certificate for a G-Fusion 5.5" Petty Knife


Conventional wisdom says you need knives in the kitchen:  a paring knife & a chef knife.  The Petty Knife challenges the notion by handling both roles with "the perfect balance of power & grace (Bob Appetit)."  Excelling at peeling, paring, boning, carving and other delicate work for vegetables, fruits, hers, the Petty also takes on some of the slicing and dicing jobs or a larger chef knife.

Perfect comlements:  steel and design.

The unique qualities of powder metal steel are amplified in this particular blade design.  In addition to being extraordinarily sharp, the steel's toughness allows for an extremely thin, agile blade that is still highly durable  The combination of elements - sharpness, thinness and durability - results in an elite tool that glides through food like an extension of the hand.

G-Fusion:  America's Best

Like cooking, making knives depends on using the best ingredients.  The G-Fusion line features the highest performing knife steel on the market - S35VN "Powder Metal" steel.  This high carbon alloyed steel has it all:  elite sharpness, toughness, edge-holding, stain resistance and sharpenability.  G-Fusion knives are made in the US with American steel and backed by a lifetime gaurantee.

G-Fusion handles are made with G10:  an aerospace-grade, fiberglass epoxy composite material that is virually bomb-proof.  New West developed unique G10 color pallets to enhance the beauty of the tool and inspire kitchen creativity.
