    For the 270mm it's about 55mm and 270g. No idea what the 210 specs would be.

    K&S also have these- http://www.knivesandstones.com/syous...g-by-kurosaki/

    The SS clad Tanaka B2 is a very sound choice. Beware they'll go fast when they come in stock!
    The Syousin Chiku by Kurosaki is a very good back up plan just incase.

    The Masakage Yuki from Knifewear was recommended in another thread. I thought it might work for you? If it does it could be another back up too.

    Hope you are able to catch one of the Tanakas when they become available.

    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.

    By modern steel you didn't mean vg10 or sg2 ?, because my Shun vg10 chipped a lot (my wife hehe)
    Don't have any experience with steels only from reading and all pointed that white#2 holds edge less and is more reactive, blue#2 could be a problem for my wife thats way I don't want to spend a lot.
    But I'm open for stainless steel but J handle no western.

    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.
    Of course pkjames but was very late or early and was thinking of pyjamas hehe. PM him so far no responded, they are out of stock so have time for searching.

    Masakage, nice collection but in white#2 and price range above for now what I'm ready to spend. Already blue will be a problem with my wife so stainless clad is necessary.

    To all from above, big thank you for helping me, more you share from your experience more I learn and FOR FREE hehe. But seriously, links where can I buy for good price and what I learned so far is priceless for me and planning and hoping to "use" you again and again- thank you.

    If you really value flat spot in the profile I don't know how much you'll be able to get in a 210mm

    He's talking about this one.

    It's the original nashiji version of the Tanaka ginsan knife. Ginsanko is one of the nicest stainless steels. Even some "carbon only" guys like it.

    The Masakage Yuki 210 gyuto is only 160$ and it's SS clad, but if the W2 doesn't work for you then it's a no go.
