On a previous forum, I was searching for both a petty and paring knife to upgrade my 4in victorinox to paring. After realizing no one I work with uses paring knives, I settled on the aebl utility and after a days use I am amazed at how many times I reached for this knife on the line. Coring and Xing tomato concasse was so easy with this nimble little knife and cutting chicken and tenderloins was thoughtless. The handle heavy blade sits perfectly in my mid sized hand and the toothy edge held up just fine after a days use. For the price, this knife is an unbelievable bargain and am looking forward to doing more detail work with it in the future... im fairly certain I have to cut a mess of shallots tomorrow.

It has a great steel in AEB-L and a tough handle. Should give you years of service, glad you like it. Wait until you put it to the stones a few times, it only gets better.
I use a 150 petty for many tasks in the kitchen.

This lil guys gone through a lot already on a shit show busy weekend. It survived a drop from a coworker without any damage. I just touched up on a gb and strops and this things a scalpel. This a fantastic performer, durable, and easily worth every penny. I would be very surprised to see anything else at it's price out perform it.

I use my Tanaka Damascus 150mm petty on the line, love the knife, and the fact that the Wa handle differentiates it from the henckels, and Wustoff utility knives that some of the other cooks use, because it doesn't get picked up accidentally.

I understand if it's busy and there's a knife right there, its getting used. I'm the one that brought it on the line and it comes with the territory. I'm just glad it survived. Dropping other people's knives is inexcusable, but no harm no foul. Sometimes you don't have time to get pissed.
