I'm going to add some knives to the Yoshimitsu Blue #2 line. This blacksmith seems to be hungry for business which is a rarity with most of my blacksmiths, so I'm going to accommodate them.

Please vote on 2 or 3 you would like to see. If you have suggestions besides these let me know.

Maybe something just off of standard like a 165mm petty? There are so many 150s out there. I'm personally always on the lookout for something longer than a 150 but shorter than a 180/210 (though a 180 could be nice).

How's about a K-tip gyuto? And I agree with btm on the 165mm petty.

Saturation is high for chefs knives. I really like longer petties like the 210 proposed. Not many makers doing that.

165mm petty is a good idea. I'm sure they can do that. I should really think more about odd sizes and shapes to accommodate people that have specific wants or needs.

210mm petty is on my "acquire" list so that will be one of them.

I'd love to see a Suji
I've been looking for a new one and that might push me to buy one

75-90mm petty as these seem to only be available from a few smiths and even some of the lines that do make them are not available here.

I want to say I'd pick it up a long petty from them in a heartbeat, but I fear I'd treat it the same as I did the Goko. I've nearly bought that knife a few times, but I am still concerned with swapping out my effectively stainless GS for a reactive line knife.

The lower price and thinner blade would tempting, I admit, even more so than the Goko for me.
