    Got the knife today. I really dig the look of it. It is very close to my DT ITK in profile. The grind reminds me of the Zakuri that I had, which is a good thing, as I pretty much knew how it would cut before ever doing so. I did slice up a room temp potato, very easy, no sticking, not surprising given the grind. I do really like knives ground like this as they feel like they separate food rather than glide through it and it's nice to have that in stainless as the only gripe I had with my zakuri was the reactivity of the cladding. Very cool knife so far.

    Yeah. I will be I guess. Ive tried to use them side by side as the itk is the closest knife I've got as far as the profile and balance goes. I really dig the tanaka a lot. Bit I can tell how much work must have gone in to it. Everything is nicely rounded. It really is a great workhorse of a knife.

    hehe, they're all out of stock now. i just hope who ever bought them up don't freak out when they see that OOTB it has crap fit & finish and needs lots of stone work. the stock handle is not bad though if you like d shape which i dont, except the one on shig.

    I emailed the vendor, Takeshi?, at metal master and he said it was only a 5 dollar up charge to change it to an octagonal handle. Not bad at all. And.... ask and ye' shall receive...

    First up is my early run DT ITK.


    And the tanaka.
