    I expect them to stay for a while. A few members here asked why they can't find anyone else stock this knife even I stated they are not K&S exclusive. Well that is because I was the one to work with Tanaka first, and I ordered a lot of them so naturally no one should have received this line before I received mine

    James, is the handle, spine & choil treatment still all K&S exclusive?

    You may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful knife
    You may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?

    Largely true, spine and choil is a K&S feature but my handles are in japan as well

    Are they all fairly true to the dimensions listed on your site? The 240 is listed as 50mm tall, while I was hearing word his blue 2 Damascus had started drifting toward 54mm tall. Are these all on the shorter end or do they vary to the taller side?

    I measure a particular sample that i randomly pick but in my experience they usually vary by 1-2mm.

    For what it's worth, my B2 Damascus is 52mm tall, and from April of last year.

    I'll play:
    Three different Tanaka 240 gyutos, all 50-51mm tall.
    One from last fall and two from two weeks a go.

    Can't agree more on the handle quality from James

    Ok. Then I misheard. I tend to prefer taller 240s. The only Tanaka 240 I've dealt with was a Ginsan Nashiji from Knives and Stones from his original batch of upgraded handles and f+f. It was 52 or so, gave it to my brother as a wedding gift. Great knife, though needed a touch of thinning to me.
