    Fwiw I owned a Zakuri petty. I thought it was too reactive for a petty. Especially considering that I often used my petty for fruit and other reactive foods.

    That's a good point, I pretty much use semi or stainless steel for fruit.

    Not doing much fruit slicing, and besides, this gives me a reason to buy a stainless petty down the line...

    I have both. I've never done a side by side test but for the most part it is six of one and half a dozen of the other. No difference that really jumps out.

    For a cheap stainless petty, take a look at the Tanaka ginsanko. It's a great knife for something under $40. I've cooked a whole meal with it.

    Since you prefer carbon, check out the Masamoto KS 165mm petty in W2 from JCK. $197 w/ saya. That extra 15mm is really helpful at times, and it has a great profile.

    I would recommend a takeda petty. I use one daily and think it has little to no reactivity so that would never be an issue. It also has an intensely sharp edge and retains it for quite a while.
