I'm thinking I might want to add another petty by the end of the year. Currently my #1 favorite go to knife is my Nenohi Type G 150mm petty. I have not found it the easiest to sharpen with my limited skill set but with work I can get it amazingly sharp and it seems to hold an edge for a rather long time. It is an almost perfect knife at home but I have found that at work I might like it to be a tad longer when I'm cutting produce, sandwiches, etc. (golf club bar).
Soooo..... based on that info and since Nenohi doesn't seem to have a longer petty, any suggestions? The caveats are:
- I don't think carbon would be a wise choice, so either stain resist or tool steel.
- Definitely needs to be double sided, not single sided.
- I do prefer a western handle but would not be opposed to a wa- handle.
- I am thinking I want 180mm and am strongly leaning that way but I am open to being convinced on 210mm.
