I have four parting tools, started out with 1/8” Sorby diamond parting tool, added Sorby Bedan, Regular, and no name thin parting tool over the years.

If had to live with only one of those would be diamond parting tool. Only down side to them is leaving nicks in cast iron tool rest. Few passes with file takes care of those nicks.

I use the Bedan and Regular parting tool for more than just parting. Have rounded side edges on regular parting tool but not Bedan.

Thin parting tool only good for parting thin stock not much else.
