    That is certainly a lot to its credit, and it peaks my curiosity.
    Yeah.. To Say that it's edge retention is above Blue Super peaks my interest too

    Has anyone purchased from this store? I have not seen a wa-handle Tanaka in R2 before this and still havn't seen an Itou R2 wa-handle. The website is very laggy on my end. I am in the USA.

    I've been eyeing the 240 ironwood and black micarta gyutos recently.
    It sounds like a good performer as well a looker.
    Now I wonder about the profile though, judging by the few pics online the profile looks almost to curve along the entire edge. Is there a decent flat that I'm just not seeing? I hope theory and hattorichop can clarify on this.

    The flat section on mine is very minimal at the back end, very slightly curves up. In the mid section there is a section where it's not flat but very slightly curves. You would miss it with your if you didn't put it up to a flat edge. Makes this knife a good board walker and a good rocker.

    Cool, thanks for sharing that. It's between this knife and a couple others for Christmas
