    If you buy this knife and then sell it at a later date, I'd like the right of first refusal.

    Looks really nice. I have recently bought a Tanaka R2 Damascus Gyuto WA - and the damascus looks different - more contrast as one of the components is quite a bit darker than the other one. I am just wondering where does the difference to your knife come from.

    This one has also been on my list for a long time, but I'm in the same situation as you.
    I admire your ability to part with it(and at a very reasonable price), and I'm astounded that it's still here.
    -Makes me wonder if perhaps people don't realize what they're seeing. Tanaka's are knives that have that x-factor presence is person (like Shig or some of the better customs) that's really difficult/ impossible to capture in person. Seeing one of these for sale here and at this price is far more rare than a DT ITK western or even a Martell and objectively it's every bit as good.

    GLWS, it' taking all my will power not to just end this now...
