    WTB Tanaka R2 240 Gyuto

    Long shot, but if there's one available, it'll be on KKF.

    I could probably be convinced to let go of my Tanaka 240 suminagashi R2 WA-gyuto. Good luck with your search.

    I probably wouldn't be able to either haha.

    After some further thought (and a hard look at my personal finances), I've decided to hold back on buying the knife for now. Thanks for the offers guys!

    Kazuyuki Tanaka, the maker of the ironwood r2 line, passed away last year. I'm not too sure if is son Shigeki is going to continue this line or not. There are still some of the smaller sizes (petty, santoku, nakiri) available in the older cowry x steel. Op, im not too sure if all the knives listed here http://thebestthings.com/knives/tanaka.htm are in stock? Maybe worth a shout?
