I'm writing to express my desire to buy tanaka kasumi Yanagi 270 MM, so i want to know if there is a lot of difference between this knife and Masamoto KK yanagi.... which is better? could you give me an advice please?

They're both good yanagis. The Masamoto has nicer finishing of the blade but I actually prefer the Tanaka because he uses better steel. http://www.chefknivestogo.com/tanakabasic.html
I also really like the fact that Shigeki Tanaka runs a small business with just a few employees and controls the entire process from heat treating to shaping and finishing his knives. They're excellent values.
A third knife you should consider in the price range are the Kaneshige yanagibas. Love those knives. Great work at this price level.
