Most days I really need to crush through a lot of prep and mostly grab a 270 and sometimes a 240 but on lighter days I enjoy using shorter gyutos. I have a fairly nice quiver to draw from because I am more apt to enjoy my job due to the variety of knives I own. I know that it is more practical and expedient to use longer knives but I really enjoy getting out a nice 210. They feel so small and nimble and are fun to see how capable they are. Heck, sometimes I will even stick with a 150 petty to do a lot of prep with. I think this has really helped improve my skills with these smaller knives.
Anyone else grab for shorter knives from time to time?
