Does anyone have any experience and/or opinions of either size of this knife? The gyuto gets amazing reviews, curious about the petty. Some people say the gyuto is too light, can't imagine how light the petty is then.

15 <> I own the HD120 Petty <--link, and can say that it is scalpel-like. It is very light, very thin & very capable of scalpel-like edges. It is a very shallow petty, as is the 150, that is similar to a steak knife, in profile. I do not care in the least for said design as a petty. I purchased my 120 as a parer, but had found it too large for my originally intended application though I do like it to turn large artichokes. I only pull it out for small fruit work though it gets used for more once it's out. It is a very precise tool; too precise for my liking in a utility knife. I prefer a 150mm w/some height as a petty, like the KanehiroG3<--link, but that depends on what you're looking for; a petty or a parer.

Thanks for the input. I was curious about the low profile and whether or not my knuckles would hit the cutting board. I would use it for smaller vegetables and meats and breaking down chickens and whatever else.

I am going with the Shun parer as, like you said, the 120 is too big to be a parer. I figure anything vegetables I need to hold in my hands will be good for the parer and anything on the cutting board will be good for the petty.

If your looking for a petty for board work then your looking for a taller petty as Mel alluded to. The Kono has to low a profile for that application. I have a slightly tall(31mm) 150mm petty and it works well for breaking down chickens and small slicing and dicing jobs on the board. I think the Kanehiro Ginsan is 34mm tall.
