    anyone try a toyama paring knife?

    I'd like to upgrade my current one (it's good but too flimsy and hate the stainless cladding). Yet I can't seem to bring myself on dropping $150 for a parer.

    I'd be interested in any other higher end full carbon parer options as well.

    P, I Have the pairing knife. Love it. It's essentially a small gyuto. 155 mm actually with no flex. Got it for my young daughters. Their learning to wipe after use as it's pretty reactive.

    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

    Would the Sakai Takayuki aogami #2 monosteels be too middle-end for you? Considering to try one myself despite some reviews here that suggested imperfect FnF but good performance...

    A Nogent would be too soft I guess?

    I'm aware. Just suggesting to Thorndahl, (who is new) that this was a long while ago. And he shouldn't hold his breath on a review


    As for Dawg adding info to an old thread that someone might still read, I have no issue at all with that.
