    Looking for 150 mm stainless petty with some belly

    I am looking for a 150 mm stainless petty. It is important that it has some belly and is not, like some petties, almost fully flat. This is because I like to use it for rock chopping herbs and small veggies. Also I'd like it to be thin (preferably a laser).

    Other information: I don't really mind whether it is wa handled or yo. I'm right handed, prefer a steel that takes a good edge and is relatively easy to sharpen and I sharpen my own knives. Budget up to, say $200. But the cheaper the better, of course, and I might be willing to pay something extra for a really special knife.

    First thing in my head was a Henckels Kramer in SG2. A little over budget but good quality and it fits the criteria, not a lot of knives fitting that description.

    If i knew exactly what I wanted... I would prolly ask Delbert Ealy to fix me up something custom for that money.

    Yoshikane's petty has more blade width and belly than many others. SKD clad with stainless.

    That Henckels Kramer in SG2 sure looks good. Not a big fan of Henckels, though and not sure if it's overpriced.

    Do you know how thick the knife is? And is SG2 able to take a better edge than, e.g., most VG-10?

    sg2 is awesome steel. vg10 can be great steel when done right. =D

    it's not so much the steel but the maker that makes a great knife.

    but yes, sg2 will be better than vg10 even if probably done not so right.

    These aren't your Dad's Henckels...actually Henckels from back in the day were great. These aren't your older brother'd Henckels.

    The GG are nice and have a bit of belly...fit the laser category.

    Honestly I'd go for something like this from Carter: http://www.cartercutlery.com/japanes...ess-fukugoza-0
    It's petty sized, but like a very small gyuto. Perfect for rocking, and takes a great edge!

    I have the carbon version of this and have been very pleased with it. The stainless steel version would be excellent I'm sure!! Josh (owner) is a great guy and his prices are competitive!
