Hey guys,

In a bit of a pre cyber Monday feeding frenzy and am thinking about picking up a petty. So here are the three that I'm thinking about and wanted to get thoughts from you guys!
As always feel free to throw out a favorite if Ive missed something.

This -- Nenox G type 150 (http://korin.com/G-Type-Petty?sc=7&category=17351)

This -- Suisen Special Inox (http://korin.com/Suisin-Special-Inox-Petty-with-the-Orange-Handle?sc=7&category=17359)

Or this -- Asai Petty (http://www.epicureanedge.com/shopexd.asp?id=85666)

In a perfect world I'd get that Fujiwara Maboroshi no Meito 150 -- but unfortunately it's way WAY out of my price range.

The Kochi is nice looking too, don't know much about them. But again a bit more expensive...

I had an Asai made knife before and it performed beautifully. Mine however was clad in an uber reactive iron tat did not mesh with my needs. Where the petty is stainless clad, I would go for it.
