Bill,
I think you have the right of it. The petty is a paring knife (though some of them are way too big for that in my eyes..).

I still want the petty... getting there.. getting there...

Thanks for the confirmation. One of my wife's favorites is a 6" petty / utility knife. Over the past 2 1/2 years, she's suffered several puncture wounds from careless handling. The sharp thin point facilitates removing unwanted parts from items like tomatoes.

The downside to the $135 model SG0409 6” knife referenced by me above is that the ersatz Damascus cladding scratches very easily. This has proven quite annoying in that I originally wasted a lot of time polishing out these scratches as they occurred and that these scratches mask a visual verification that the knife has been properly cleaned.

I think this knife should be sent to Texas for testing and evaluation purposes. I might know someone you could um...help you out with this.

No, no.

That's how I nearly cut off the end of my index finger this summer. (But with a Henkel chef's knife)

Actually, I only said that to make Frank say, "GAH!"

It was worth it!

I usually use my blender on the ice chopper speed when I want chopped ice!

I buy inexpensive knives, why spend lots of money on something I am likely to do serious harm to myself.
