So, I have a really good gyuto (Konosuke HD 240), good slicer (Sabatier 4*), decent bread knife (Forschner 10.25" with rosewood handle). I have some cheap Forschner paring knives, along with a Wusthof Culinar paring and a short Tojiro ITK carbon paring knife.
I hone on an Idahone, use wooden boards (mostly end-grain) and have 1200 and 6000 waterstones for sharpening. I'm still fairly new to freehand sharpening, but working on it. I'm a home cook, but I like nice knives and good tools.
I'd like to fill out my set with a decent quality (not great, but not too cheap) petty/utility knife in the 150mm/6" range. I'd prefer stainless or at least semi-stainless. Here are my contenders:
Masamoto VG ($92)
Mac Pro ($70)
Misono Moly ($86)
Hiromoto G3 ($72)
(I'd also consider Fujiwara FKM or Tojiro DP, but would prefer something a bit better, if there is good value.)
Any recommendations particularly for or against any of these to help me narrow down my choice? Any others I should seriously think about? I want to keep price ~$75.
Thanks for any input!
