Now you definitely have me thinking on petty knives. I have yet to sort out the clad vs. single-steel knives, but the profile is definitely resonating with me. The petty knives I have and regularly use include (from top to bottom):
  • Masamoto carbon 150 petty, 26 mm
  • Kap-Kam (house branded) Cowry-X 150 petty, 29 mm
  • Konosuke White #2 210 petty, 27 mm

The Konosuke clearly has a lower height-to-length ratio than the others, with a more acute point. Don't get me wrong, it is a killer mini-slicer and works great for cleaning up proteins, at least as I use it at home.

I will have to look into the options you suggested for a taller 150...

Height measurements are from the knives directly -- the camera perspective may cause what is read off the ruler in the photo a bit different.

JEFF <> We are hijacking this thread a bit, but it is still on topic.

To me, short pettys are - like the way you describe your Kono - just that, mini-slicers. They are limited by design. They are not multi-purpose knives which is how I view a "petty." For me, I need my knives to be as versatile as possible.

Thread jack away boys, at this point I have more than info just need to pull the trigger. I feel a taller 150 petty could do some detailed chopping like shallots or smaller onions as well as cleaning up boneless proteins and be a handy little slicer as well. What do you guys think of Moritaka?

JW <> I love Moritakas, but I don't know what the actual height is on their 150... looks in the high 20's. Mark, direct can get you the dimensions, or a board member here might come through.

I have a Moritaka 150mm petty and it is a great knife that I use exactly the way you intend to use it! Mine measures just barely under 30mm and I would put one that has not been sharpened exactly on 30mm (plus or minus considering manufacturing tolerances).

This is by far my second most used knife (my Gyuto being first). I can highly recommend it!
