    150 petty if one is handy; DT ITK preferred (the thinnest 150 I have). But whatever 240 gyuto is on the board usually gets the call.

    Yup...but, thinking about selling it and getting a single-bevel honesuki....have to find that old thread, someone had dibs on it if I decided to sell.

    150mm Konosuke HD petty. Works like a charm.

    The oranges I ended up using yesterday had really small segments and disproportionately large seeds (!!). I used my 210mm gyuto, but wasn't too happy with the process. I have small hands (my ring finger size is 3.75, if that puts it in perspective), so it felt unwieldy to me with the small orange and big (relatively) knife. I'll look into a 150mm petty, honesuki and sujikikis. Thanks for all the recs

    Ok, don't kick me out or anything, but I picked this up at Whole Foods this morning


    It's the Kyocera Utility knife (11cm). I used it to peel mangoes and oranges for my smoothie this morning. I am really, really pleased with its performance. I didn't realize *how* dull my 3 year old Kyocera paring knife had gotten until I compared the two. I will probably use this for my in-a-rush morning fruit needs, since I don't need to worry about wiping the blade dry afterwards.

    K, ready to be exiled now.

    I use my 150mm Masakage Shimo petty for stuff like this.
