need robust paring and utility
currently use wusthof classic 3" paring and 6" utility and beat the living crap out of them. they work fine, but i have to sharpen them every other day it seems.
since they take so much abuse, i am contemplating if it's even worth investing much on them or just try to find budget priced ones.
for the paring, i'm thinking ******** in aeb-l <--any others i should be considering?
for utility, fujiwara fkm 120mm petty. also looking at hiromoto g3 120mm but that's a good $30 more than the fuji.
get a 150mm, a 120mm is way too short.
the paring you chose is a great start.
I've got this sweet little misano from Korin that I like a lot. http://korin.com/Misono-Molybdenum-P...ategory=280076 It put my wustie and henckle parers out of a job.
If you can reach a little deeper the Delbert Ealy paring knife might be the best parer you'll ever own. (He has his own forum here)
went with a factory second mac 3" parer and masamoto vg 150 petty. would like to give the misono or togiharu inox a try but 70 is too much for a parer...
