110/120mm, stainless wa-petty under $80?

Thu Aug 16, 2012 8:45 pm

Does such a thing exist?

I've been hunting about but not having any luck. Like the Tojiro ITK 120mm Petty (http://www.chefknivestogo.com/toitkshpe120.html) but with better rust/corrosion resistant steel.

Thanks for any help/pointers.

There are some choice if you are ok with a western handled petty.

Dojo comes to mind. Aogami super on a little petty: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/dopakn80.html

After much digging, I narrowed the field to;

* Shun Classic 4": http://www.chefknivestogo.com/shun-paring-knife.html
* Miyabi Kaizen: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/mika4pakn.html
* Miyabi 7000D: http://www.cutleryandmore.com/miyabi-70 ... fe-p111284
* Tojiro Flash: http://www.cutleryandmore.com/tojiro-fl ... e-p113660#

By chance though, while doing a more generalized search for shun 4", I stumbled on and finally got this:

I was worried that being only 4", it would be a stubby santoku like the OXO Mini Santoku:

But calling into their sales line, the rep physically got one to inspect and she said it's more like the picture when you click on the 4" selection box (more elongated, like a proper santoku), so I bought it.

Well, it's obviously not a paring/petty, but I couldn't pass on the notion of a Shun Damascus hollow-ground Santoku, in a paring/petty size.

I have the Tojiro ITK 150mm Petty and it's a great knife and for the price it's a no brainer. Corrosion is no problem if you take care of it (wipe it down and dry it). It's taking a patina now and I'm cool with that, but if Bling is a factor go with a VG10 blade.

This one didn't occur to me until Ken and I were talking today but it's an excellent little petty:
