Added the Tanaka gyuto to my short list. Good price for a blue steel knife. Though they don't say if it's B#2 or AS. And I don't like the Ho wood handle (prefer ebony).
Other knives being considered: Kikuichi TKC 240mm, Masamoto VG 240mm and definitely a Sakai Yusuke "special thin" 240mm (ebony handle) when Mark gets them in at the end of next month.
Not sure how sharp Kikuichi TKC/Masamoto VG are OOTB...which doesn't really matter now...since, I plan to have the knives sent to maybe Eamon Burke or Murray Carter to be thinned/sharpened before I receive them.
