Hey all. Well I've been upgrading a few of my knives over the past two months and I've been wanting to pick up a new petty. I've narrowed it down to two picks. They are both single bevel and since I'm a lefty added expense. So if anyone has ever used either one or both or has another suggestion please let me know. As always thanks a ton guys.

The first is a Azuma Minamoto 120mm white steel 2 and would run me about 90-100$ from aframestokoy.

While the second one I was pondering was a Watanabe Kuro-uchi Ajikiri in 120mm and is 83 but with shipping which is 25 if I remember so about the same.

Once again thank for the input guys.

The azuma looks like a dedicated peeler, might make it difficult to do any sort of coring. The watanabe looks more versatile.
