    Tanaka Damascus Blue Steel 240mm Gyuto?

    Everyone's very helpful on the board, so I wanted to contribute in my limited way. Anyone interested in playing with a Tanaka 240mm gyuto? Light and thin, and pretty fun to cut with. However, there's fit and finish issues - choi is rough and the blade is not 100% perfectly straight. The middle is off by ~0.5mm.

    I wouldn't mind trying it out, either.

    These are worth a try folks. They're fun little knives. If this is a passaround, I highly recommend trying it out if you have no experience with them and can deal with the carbon (they're pretty reactive.)

    Yep, would like to pass around the Tanaka. Please use it as you would any chef's knife - patina and sharpening are fine. Once you have the knife in your possession, please post on this thread stating that you have it, enjoy for a week, and then pass to the next forum member.

    So far it's as follows:

    don -> Lefty -> mhenry -> tk59

    I'll send to Lefty on Wednesday.

    Thanks.

    Nice, I'm in for sure. Tanakas have always piqued my interest.
    Thanks for doing this!

    If the line isn't too long, I'd like to jump in on it. I've been very interested to check out a Tanaka.

    Mike: Line is not long at all.

    All: don -> [ENROUTE] -> Lefty -> mhenry -> tk59 -> Miles

    Though, let me know if mhenry and Miles want to go back to back, since you guys are in Tejas.
