    Privet, did you also check out MetalMaster? He ships cheaply and sells Tanaka.

    For the E-bay examples shown,Yamawaku Resin collar,burnt chestnut handle,V2 steel is a nice blade for the money.

    The Tojiro has a soft plastic collar & poor fit & finish.

    Would Yamawaku require any thinning OOTB to perform nicely?

    The blade has a nice geometry for the price point.It looks good too with the Kasumi finish.The steel is quality & gets razor sharp.Major thinning is not needed to make it cut well.I start with a shallow bevel close to the stone & finish with a higher bevel.

    Just a little thinning behind the edge is all it needs,that is done in regular sharpening.

    I like Fujiwara FKM, and you can get it from Japanese Chef Knives that ships internationally for a reasonable price.

    While JCK really offers great prices on FKM, I would't buy them for myself anytime soon. Got a FKM 150mm petty and while it's a good value for the money, I don't really like the handle.

    Might order Carbonext from them later. Just for sake of playing with it. And gift to someone later on.

    And now I'm still on the trip and still struggling with crappy knives in Barcelona. Yamawaku is already ordered and should be with me on next trips

    What do you dislike about the handle on the FKM?

    Seb, I don't like the smell. It has a rather subtle but unpleasant smell which became a bit stronger when handle became wet. Not a deal breaker, but I hasn't such problems with other knives.
