Going to have to agree with Adam and Vovaskitchen on the Hiromoto Petty, I love that little knife.

For a gyuto 210mm, I've decided to go with Adam's suggestion and get Kikuichi TKC as soon as it is back in stock, hope it's not going to take long.

For a petty 150mm, I will stick to stainless, but I can't decide what to get:
Hiromoto G-3 petty

or
Mac Pro petty

For a paring, I liked three knifes.
Shun Classic Paring
http://www.chefknivestogo.com/kepakn31.html

Tamahagane San Paring or Tamahagane San Tsubame Micarta(from cutleryandmore)
http://www.chefknivestogo.com/ta3paknsn.html

Mac Pro Paring
http://www.chefknivestogo.com/macprpakn31.html

What should I get? It's difficult to decide without feeling knives in person.

I like the Hiromoto petty over the Mac if for nothing else it has better steel.

For the paring, I've never tried that Tamahagane one....but of the other two I like the Shun better......just fits my hand better. The Mac, though, is a great shape and I really like it too. If I had to pick, though, it would be the Shun.

Thanks Adam. I will go with Hiromoto.

What about the steel in those Tamahagane comparing to Mac or Shun?

It's "similar".....nothing wonderful, but certainly not a poor steel. It's been a long time since I've used a knife with it though.
