    Opinions wanted 4 inch utility

    One of the things that came up multiple times was that I needed a model between my petty and paring. 4 inches seems about right.
    What do you guys think?
    I would like something other than a steak knife, but could be used for that, I'm thinking right between my paring and petty in size and style.
    Thanks,

    That's a great idea Del - I retired my 150 petty when I picked up an old honyaki 130mm petty and it's just a great knife. Sometimes less is more.

    BTW I boned a duck out with that parer I got from you recently and it did a stellar job. I was thinking "damn I wish this was just a little longer"

    Del -- I like the idea. I prefer a paring closer to 4 inches then 3.

    Sounds great, I'm more used to 4 inch paring knives than 3 inch.

    I'm thinking great idea. Also think 9-10" skinny/thin filet knife from you would be stellar!
