OK, so my girlfriend will be stealing my misono ux10 petty and hattori hd this coming semester and I find myself in the need for a new petty (how convenient). Budget is ~$60; I have the choices narrowed down to the mc66 twin cermax (there's a sale; don't shoot me), Hiro AS and carbonext. I know the handle+balance for the cermax sucks, but would that matter much with such a small knife? I'm pretty interested in trying out zdp-189 and AS steels, but I'm not sure if AS is the right fit as I do cut mostly fruit and veggies with petties. Any opinions/suggestions are welcome .
