    Looking for an affordable (semi)SS petty

    Hi all,

    I would like your advice on obtaining an affordable (semi)stainless petty for my lady. I noticed that she enjoys using my blue steel petty, however she doesn't like to care for it. Therefore I am looking for an affordable (she tends to abuse knives ), (semi)SS (it might not get wiped (quickly) after use) petty.

    So far I am eyeballing a JCK CarboNext or a hiromoto Tenmi-Jyuraku Gingami No.3.
    Are there any contestants that I am missing? Any recommendations?

    About 12cm and I am having up to 130 US $ (100 EUR) in mind (incl shipping), but I am very open to suggestions.

    (We do have a Yusuke 19cm gyuto, which is considered long.. )

    One of the best little petty knives I've used was/is a Fujiwara FKH. Mine is carbon, but I'd have zero hesitation recommending the stainless (FKM) line. Japanesechefsknife.com carries them, has $7 shipping and Koki is amazing to deal with. For $44 ($51 total), you can have the 150mm. Done!

    A delicate question as a present to the lady is involved...
    Petties tend to wear out quickly. The actual edge length is relatively small, a lot of board contact will occur, they got sharpened frequently.
    A good reason to choose an abrasion resistant stainless.
    Lefty's suggestion of the Fujiwara FKM is great. Get the 150mm.

    Don't worry it isn't considered a gift, that wouldn't be appreciated

    you have a good point wrt the length. Now I think about it, I am trying to add parer capabilities to a petty. The reason is that I recently saw her removing the green core of some garlic in her hand and that looked a bit unsettling with the 15 cm petty. i probably should just get an additional parer as well

    Misono Moly has the nicest modern parer I've seen. Actually, get the petty too and make it a pair for her.
