    Thanks for the ideas guys. Yes i know 130mm to 180mm is a big gap, I guess i was thinking more 150 to 180. I had a 130mm Moritaka that i liked, but want more size than that. That Masamoto looks great, probably my favorite at this point.

    For me, a petty should be 150mm on the edge and no mm longer to use it effectively. If I needed a longer knife, I probably would get a short suji (210-225mm).
