I've been looking for a petty knife/utility knife for a while now and I cant make up my mind, I was wondering if you could recommend me one.
I'm starting a new forum for our store. Do you mind if I use your question and my answer?
Here are a few questions first:
Are you right handed?
Do you know how to sharpen?
Stainless or carbon?
Western handle or Wa handle?
Do you have a price in mind?
I'm guessing you want a 150mm petty or something close?
Sounds great, I don't mind at all.
I'm right handed
I do sharpen at home. I'm currently using a King combo stone 800/6000
I prefer carbon, but I'm flexible.
I enjoy a nice Wa handle
I'm open as far as the price.
I'd like to keep it around 150mm.
Thank you Mark!
My favorite 150mm carbon petty is the Moritaka supreme petty. The steel is excellent and it has a nice rosewood octagonal handle on it. I also like the shape of this particular blade for a petty. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/moritaka3.html
The other one I like very much is the Konosuke white #2 petty. It's light, nimble, thin and hard. It's a great little knife for the price.http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kowh2pe15.html
The Kono should be back in stock in about 2 weeks.
Good luck and let me know if you have any other questions.
