    Sorry to hijack your thread, but could somebody tell me what's the difference between a long Petty knife and
    a similar length Gyuto.
    I'm a newbie and just trying to learn.

    The biggest difference is the height of the blade, often the grind is flatter on the sides, as opposed to convex on many gyutos and the profile (edge curve) can be a little less "tip high" due to the shallower blade profile.
    Hope that helps.
