When I bought this knife late last year, it was actually my only gyuto. I always wished it were 20g heavier, but the profile was just perfect. But a few months later I got a 240 Kato WH and a 210 Munetoshi honyaki, what made the Tanaka redundant - and I did not use it since about February. So the time has come for it to go to a new owner.

As mentioned before - I am looking mainly to sell within EU - non EU guys can get the knife new (sale on JNS) for not much more.

The knife was sharpened 3 or 4 times, no thinning, no Kasumi experiments. The knife has no issues.

Cutting edge length: 225 mm
Height at the heel: 55 mm
Weight: 180 g
Price: 250€ 210€ plus shipping

A few measurements of the spine thickness:
In front of the handle: 2.92 mm
Above the heel: 2.86 mm
1/2 towards the tip: 2.51
50 mm from the tip: 1.86 mm
20 mm from the tip: 1.35 mm
10 mm from the tip: 0.75 mm

I can give a more exact measurement later, but trying to measure with a ruler it is somewhere between 2.5 and 3 mm, possibly close to 3.

I will make a few measurements to give a better idea of the distal taper

Beautiful knife! Did you manage to take some more measurements?

Also, do you have any idea what shipping to the U.K. would be roughly?

And finally, why are you doing this to me?! My wife already hates how many knives I’ve got?!
