    Is SG-2 Steel the same as R2? I can only see SG-2 Tanakas on Chubo.

    There's been a few threads on it.

    Probably would do the same (well, maybe I'd grab Wakui/Yamawaku instead of Tanaka, but I'd definitely pocket the rest :D ).

    I want a Shiggy gyuto 240 or 270.
    If somehow I could just trick the knife into thinking I live in Australia, it would be much easier.

    Konosuke Fuyijama White#2 Kiritsuke 240 mm or Takamura Uchigumo Suminagashi Gyuto (probably 210 mm). 450 euros available so ~ 500 dollars but may be little over budget.

    210 gyuto made by elder shig son. Missed the acquisition the first time and waited two years for it to show up again. Amazing little knife; kind of thin shig with great profile
