    Honestly, I like this one, just would like read a little or heard something about this one, so far I know that Tanaka made great knives for their price but blade and handle need some touch ups.
    I can spend more then $200 but want to make one step at the time and after Shun get J gyuto from mid price like plus $150 and start my adventure from there. I want also Utility, paring, bread knives but will ask in different post for suggestions, it is important that knives are going to get now will needs some "treatment of heart" and they will give back on cutting board.

    Anyone who has a stainless clad Tanaka care to comment on profile, grind and performance?

    Looking for a signature that won't land me in trouble

    Don't take that wrong but it is important how the knife will look also and profile of Ikazuchi isn't nicest I saw so far but if you have others let me know please.
    What kind of look and profile are you looking for?

    Some pics of the 270
    Profile
    Choil

    Plenty of heft but thin behind the edge. Cuts great. I really like the steel.

    Blue steel is overrated, dont underestimate the performance and convenience of modern stainless steels.

    Your wife isnt going to want to constantly wipe the blade off and remove rust marks just to make dinner.

    Have you looked into Gesshin Ginga yet, i own quite a few japanese knives and none match the performance of this knife. They also have some in white#2 if youre commited to buying carbon steel.

    Auto-correct fail!
    pkjames becomes pajamas (pyjamas?) Don't think James will live that one down.
    But seriously, James' line of Tanakas has addressed many, if not all of the F&F issues they were know for. I'm very happy with my Blue 2 kurouchi gyuto - the custom handle is an added bonus.
