Alright fellow knife nerds! Looking for a petty to round out my kit. Would be used as a line knife and to bone chickens and ducks.

Would prefer:
Wa-handle
Possibly clad with carbon
135-150mm

Any help is appreciated!
GO!

There aren't a ton of Wa Petty's under $100. Options:

Goko 150mm Petty - stainless over White #1
Anryu KU 150 Petty - reactive cladding over White #2
Kohetsu 150 Petty - stainless or AS (slightly over budget)
Zukuri 150 Petty - reactive cladding over Blue #1
Tojiro ITK 150 Petty - reactive cladding over White #2 (the steel in this line is known to be quite reactive)
Tanaka Sekiso Damascus - reactive cladding over Blue #2 (this is my favorite of this group, but it's a fully reactive blade) (slightly over budget)

For a line knife, I'd pick a taller Petty like the Anryu or Tanaka. (Tojiro is pretty tall as well). They're all around 33-35mm at the heel and vary a bit with each knife.

Teruyasu-Fujiwara Nashiji 150mm Petty: http://www.chefknivestogo.com/fujiwara4.html
Love this knife and worth every penny! The white carbon at 64HRC takes it to a different world. Super, super sharp and holds that edge really well. Excellent grind and love the Nashiji finish. It is in between the shorter and taller petties @31mm and works well for me.
If you prefer taller petties look through the different Tanaka series.

What about this one
little over budget non wa-handle but if it's like the 210 that is getting rave reviews might also be worth it.

My Tojiro petty hits the spot. I oiled the handle when I got it and haven't looked back. Came with a slight wave to the blade but still sharp and I can shave my face with the silly thing... which says a lot. ANd it is in budget.

Yeah, if you can stretch your budget, this is an incredible knife.
