Go ahead: brands, steel, type of knife...anything.
For me, I'm not one to quibble over steel. I sort of expect difficult steel to have a future payoff somehow -- though that isn't always the case. BUT small paring knives make me feel like a retard. They laugh at me, call me fat, and push me off the monkey bars in front of the girls.
The margin of error on angle is smaller and there is really nothing separating the belly from the tip. All of of my inadequacies are evident.
