    Hey all-

    My obsession with 210 petties has started to shrink- lately 180/190 is that sweet spot. Looking to get something new and fun while I wait for my next Yanick. Would love a Kato, but open to other oddities. Kind of a weird size I know, but I’ll take my chances. Cash or trade- I have a few knives....

    Thanks all!
    Greg

    180mm is the absolute best length for a petty.

    Just ask me.

    My Comet 180 Honyaki petty is in full agreement with this statement.

    Actually I'm torn between the 18cm or the 180mm. But one of these definitely.

    Imperial doesn’t work these days it has a serious problem with retention
