So I have been feeling lately that I need to get a long petty or short sujihiki. You know, something in the 180-210mm range. Probably wa handled and carbon vs stainless doesnt matter as much to me but I do love steels that sharpen easily and are responsive to stropping. I touch up my knives on the stones pretty often so crazy edge retention isn't my top priority.
What knives do you guys use for these purposes? I haven been looking around and the Gesshin Ino 180mm pettys(especially the single bevel one) and the Heiji 210 suji are peaking my interest. Hmmmm
