    Help with tang sizes, please?

    Hi,

    I am just playing around with a few things. If you have a moment and a ruler (or a caliper), could you have a look at your 210 to 270 wa gyuto(s) and let me know the size of the tang at the point where it enters into the handle? Something like 4mm x 12mm (or whatever that is in inches ). I am hoping to get a list for a few makers together to get a better idea of the sizes. Of course, they will vary a bit even for each maker, but a general idea is enough for now.

    Thanks,

    Stefan

    All of my handles are epoxied, so the measurement is taken flush above the handle.

    Zensho 210- 4mm x 14mm
    Yoshikane SKD- 4.75mm x 13mm
    Yoshikane 240 Kiritsuke Shaped Gyuto- 3.5mm x 17mm (It huge front to back)
    Gesshin Heiji 210 SS- 3.5mm x 13.5 mm
