How much boning do you do? (somehow that just sounds so wrong --Steve)

I don't do much, so use my old Wusthoff boner & my Dexter cleaver for bigger jobs.

If you DO bone allot a dedicated Hankotsu is best.

I like the Misono carbon steel better but the Takayuki is stainless and thus lower maintenance.

I've made it known many times that I feel for the price you can't beat the Teruyasu-Fujiwara 150mm petty.
I have the 210 gyuto also and love it dearly. I don't find these knives to be anymore "chippy" than any other carbon I have.
If anything, the high-hardness lends itself to better edge retention more than anything. These knives just don't dull.

Hi Gladius and Jeff,

I don't do tonnes of butchering. A bird or two a week, plus the odd rib rack, etc. It sounds to me as though I shouldn't really worry about this as much as other aspects of the petty (height, steel, handle, etc).

Both of your fugiwara suggestions are well taken Gladius and Jeff. I'll let you know what I think when they arrive.

Thanks for the advice.

Mark

Ordered the fugiwara petty last night. Ended up deciding to wait on the Anryu gyuto coming into stock.

Thanks everyone for your recommendations. I will fill you in on what I think when it arrives.
