    I'd have to agree with that from my experience.

    Another thing I would watch out for in a flexible knife is the flex that enters the handle. I had a coworker that was using a konosuke 210mm petty like you would a filet knife, and the tang was flexing all the way into the handle and caused it to crack. I know I am coming late to this conversation, but I hope that helped.

    Yah, and it was a dope Mike Henry mammoth tooth!

    Now I use a vintage 9" carbon Ontario filet that I rehandled, and I save the Kono petty for other tasks.

    They are two different things to me. The knife I feel comfortable using as both is a 210 gyuto.

    A Western boning knife has a guard so you don't accidentally slide your hand on the edge while deboning. Just my to cents. Good luck with creating. Curious what it will become ?
