    WTT: Tanaka R2 Damascus Micarta 150 Petty, also WTB!

    This knife is a recent acquisition for me. I absolutely love it, but cannot, at the moment, keep it. It's one of the best cutters I've touched and the R2 feels amazing on stones. It's in great shape, but has been used.

    I've got a couple stages lined up and am moving back into pro kitchens. I'm a LEFTY and would prefer to not have a right-biased blade to correct. What I'm interested in or need and don't have:

    -150 petty, carbon or good stainless
    -270-300 suji, carbon
    -240-270 gyuto, carbon (or super tasty stainless)
    -honesuki
    -bread knife

    I'd be willing to trade for combinations of these. If you have a knife to sell that a mostly poor person could afford, I could consider buying it outright. Also, does anyone have a CarboNext or Artifex laying around? I've been curious to try one.

    Thanks, guys!

    PMs replied to.

    I should add that my other worthwhile knives are a 240 Moritaka AS gyuto and a 270 Sakai Yusuke AEB-L gyuto. I'm hoping to round this out into a fuller work kit. I can't keep her because I need knives I'd feel (more) comfortable having in a pro kitchen.

    You may want to put up a base price for this knife as well.

    Thanks, ThEoRy. I'd start at $275.

    This is still available. No bias on the edge. In fact, it should probably be seen by someone with far better sharpening skills than me.

    I'm interested in carbon gyutos under 270mm. I'd love a 210 line knife.
