Basically, simple question, i want to get myself decent parer.

What would you propose? Is the misono allright, or could I get better for that price?
I can propably go with any shape and steel if its not banana shaped blade and doesnt cost 300 per inch.

Thanks

I've been on the lookout for a decent parer for ages so this thread interests me. The Hattori FH one looks awesome but is a little pricey. Anyone ever use these Eden Quality knives? Seems like a good deal for VG10. I think I'll give one of these a shot. The Misono prices went up, but the parer ain't so pricey so it might be worth getting

If I had to get an inexpensive parer today, I would get a CarboNEXT.

Thanks TK, it was very helpful.:D I cannot see any peeler on offer from CN... But I guess its misunderstanding and mixing parer with petty - just like Koki did when I asked him. It aint the same and the shape is completely different I would like to peel with petite.

Stefano, I wouldnt loose 20 quid for Eden, its almost 40 bucks and if you add another 40, theres a knife looking like its going to last...

Anyway I cannot have the heel like it is on Eden, the handle must be smaller than on chefs knife - so not like on Kasumi, but bigger than on Global, so the grip is comfortable under water.

Dojo is a very thin, very hard, cladded blade with AS core. They are sold by EE and Cktg.

I bought one of these from CKTG. Seemed appealing, but was very unevenly ground. I have a high tolerance for such things, especially when they otherwise meet my expectations, but it was still annoying.

Thanks a Lot! Do you think it would make it impossible to use it after a while? How was the possible sharpness? The FF? Worth taking overall?

The misono Swedish is a good one. Sharpens easy and took a good forced patina. Handle is solid, price is right. Feels good in the hand.

Depens on what you use it for. For peeling you want an inverted geometry: if you're right-handed, have the right face flat and the left one convexed, and the edge off-centered to the right . Normal parers tend to be poor peelers.
Misono does make peelers.
