    Looking for a 180 carbon western handled petty

    Here are a couple that I'm looking at:

    Opinions, ideas?

    Never seen any of those but I bet they are at least on par with your FKH knives. I might have to pick up one myself. Sorry, that is not too helpful. :P

    I seem to remember bernal mentioning that these were pretty asymmetrical and not recommended for lefties. Sounds like a decent knife.

    I'd say that is a fair possibility. All of the mono yo non laser lines I have tried have been noticeably asymmetrical.

    From your list, I get the sense you're shooting for sub-$100?

    The knife from Bernal you linked is sold out...
    I'd +1 Panda's rec for a ginga 180. I have that exact knife and use it a lot. Great multi-purpose. Not sub-$100 though.

    Or, you could bump up to a 210mm gyuto and watch the recommendations cascade in!

    Ya, really like my FKH's they are my everyday knives, get used a lot, have wanted a 180 petty tho, these knives appear to be made from SK steel same as the FKH's.

    What do you use the 180 Ginga for? Does it have much flex? Have also had my eye on the KS petty (170 actual length) but I wonder if it has too much flex.
