    Hard to do better at that price! You would need to jump into a much higher price bracket for a better damascus knife.

    Just remember no hitting bones with fine Japanese blades. And, clean and dry carbon blades quickly after use to prevent rust spots. When a patina forms the reactivity will calm down!

    Tanaka has a bit of a reputation for lower prices knives. Even the rough around the edges version that MM sells punch way above their weight class. The K&S version would be a deal at $275 or more. The knives that perform comparably at a similar price point are few indeed.

    I think Tanaka was a good choice.

    My Tanaka R2 240mm gyuto just arrived from K&S today.

    The ebony handle is the best I've seen and K&S treatment on the spine and choil are very well done

    Let us know your thoughts when it arrives.

    Absolutely. This is the most I've ever spent on a knife.

    One day you will look back at this post and laugh, as you scan your eyes across a handful of knives you now own that are a bit, uh, more expensive

    I did that with vaping. Bought a cheap kit, upgraded, etc. Now I own a successful vaping merchandise website and specialize in making custom coils for vapers. And I also own and run a vaping related forum. I tend to jump in head first...

    Fellow ex-smoker and now ex-vaper. Best thing I did to quit a 20 year live affair with the stinkies. I loved my high end gear.
