they have a wierd shape
Does anyone make a western-handled 210 petty/suji?
"Experience" is what you get when you don't get what you want.
I just ordered a 210mm Gesshin Ginga suji-petty for this purpose. Got to the point I couldn't handle having a big ass 270 gyuto on the line anymore (too many dishwashers setting things on it when I call for product), needed something I can tuck away behind my board, out of harm's way.
I'm glad to see all the love for 210 pettys lately...I thought that spaceconvoy and I used to be the ones who saw value in them.
But after using my 210 Suisin regularly for six months, I'm really starting to think that a 240 suji with the perfect profile and yo-handle(can't believe I prefer a yo) would suit me better as my main knife at home--Gesshin Ginga I've been looking at you.
