I'm just about ready to pull the trigger on a Takeda. Ohhh boy.
I do have a question though- While I would prefer the 270mm option, I have heard a rumor (http://zknives.com/knives/kitchen/ktknv/takeda/tkgy280.shtml
) that the 270 is actually not as tall as the 240.
Can anyone verify if this is true? If the big Takeda is at least 60mm tall I would be very happy to have one indeed.
