    request thread? (Tanaka)

    Hey James, noticed your comment in the Tanaka thread and figured maybe we could start a special interest/request thread here. I believe the original question was about the less expensive R2 line but I'll let someone else speak to that. My curiosity involves the blue 2 nakiris...really like to see how a 180 Tanaka would perform.

    Cheers

    once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right

    Yeah, the 180 nakiri sounds great, B2, SS clad, heel hight 54-59mm and the vintage Tanaka grind. Where can send my money???

    I'd be interested in a polished blue#2 wide bevel knife. Like the nashiji, but polished above the bevel. It'd be a plus if it were stainless clad too, but I don't think he does stainless clad carbon

    thanks guys. AFAIK, a batch Tanaka Ginsan will come around the new year. Next year I will work more closely with Tanaka to figure out some more new stuff. Obviously not everything is achievable but I will try my best

    The cheap R2 will be available once I come back from the holidays.

    how come tanaka doesnt make any suji's? not for me but i think there is a niche of affordable suji that isn't filled yet.
    oh, i miss my old 270 ginsan gyuto, that thing had such a sweet profile.

    While we are at it, does tanaka still make the western ironwood? Seems to be out of stock everywhere for a while now.
