    I'm very pleased with my recent acquisition of an Ashi 150mm petty. Even though it's the standard line, it's a pleasure to sharpen and a superb value. Edge retention is no problem because it rarely hits the cutting board, and never with any force. F&F is really fantastic (though no rounded choil/spine). If budget is at all a concern, I'd opt for the cheaper, non-Gesshin petty and put the $45 towards the gyuto.

    Tanaka's blue#2 150-160mm wa-petty is freakin' wonderful; real sharp OOTB, exceedingly thin and not very reactive.
