I'm going to pick up my Shimo 150 petty as we speak. I'll post initial impressions later this evening.

The petty cuts like a dream. Had a great grind out of the box, ran it through some shallots and a small brownie trout— melted through the shallots, clean cuts and hardly any sticking, but what really impressed me was how it handled the fish. Absolutely effortless, it seemed like it just floats through it.

Fit and finish is good and the weight has just enough heft to feel sturdy (mine actually weighed in at 71 grams, a little under what was advertised.) And it's gorgeous to look at. This will be my first non-clad carbon knife, so I'm a little anxious about upkeep, but I take really good care of my knives and don't foresee any problems. Also looking forward to getting this thing on the stones.

All in all I couldn't be happier with my purchase so far.
