Petty knife question

Mon Dec 09, 2013 10:20 pm

Thank you for the info! Another quick question or opinion rather. Another style I've been wanting to get is a petty knife and I have tried the konosuke hd2 and love the semi stainless they use and also heard the suisin inox is a great steel as well. I currently have a moritaka gyoto that I use so it's aogami super and I ordered the masakage for the white. The konosuke and suisin are rather expensive is there another knife with a similar steel for a little less?

Have you tried Gingami 3 steel? (it translates to silver paper 3)

This would be a fun choice: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kagipe15.html

AEB-L is also excellent and the Kikuichi is a beautiful knife that uses that steel: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kiswwadape15.html

+1 to the Kanehiro Ginsan Petty - that's an amazing knife!

If full carbon is an option, the Tanaka petty is nice:

I do prefer stainless (or at least stainless clad) in a petty, though.

But it's more than the stock handle HD2 petty.
