Really like the look of this one. How are the weight and the spine width, if you don't mind me asking?
Ok, here’s the measurements
Edge length 245mm
Spine above the heel 3.17
Spine in the middle 1.8
49mm tall at the heel

side by side comparison with 258mm Hd2 and 275mm Kochi

The 3 to the left weren’t new, but the sayas are! The two on the right are the newest additions. In order left to right:

Gihei B2 240mm gyuto
Mazaki KU W2 275mm sujihiki
Takeda NAS AS 170mm gyuto
Kaisō monocarbon 185mm kogetsu
Mazaki Coal quenched Migaki W2 240mm gyuto

Worth mentioning for anyone looking to get work done, the goketsu handle and saya were made by kaisō. All other sayas and first and last handles were made by custom chop shop.

This is my dream knife. I love the profile. Feels more European than Japanese which is what I am used to. I originally wanted a Mazaki, but they are difficult to get in Canada, and since he changed the profile, I didn’t think it was worth ordering internationally. I consider this an upgrade to the Mazaki with the steel type anyway.

Looks cool. If you dislike the handle I recommend replacing it with a custom one by Jody Hale/ Pie Cutlery. I had him make an oversized, dyed burl, live edge handle to my specific measurements and it's incredible. Like putting on shoes that fit for the first time... easy to find him on Instagram.

Dang, the taper on this thing must be pretty impressive to only be 222g. That choil shot makes it look thiiicccc. Looks like a beast.

That looks amazing. Is it iron or stainless clad? Where did you get it?

I am happy with the handle for now, but thank you for the recommendation.

She is thicc. ;) Very beastly. It has minimal distal taper, but the wide bevel grind is nice, making it thin near the tip.

Iron clad. Getting some patina already. I bought it from thecooksedge.com It is the only place I have seen a Y.Tanaka with AS steel.
damn that’s hoooot
Thank you. I think so too.

I had a mazaki then sold it in favor of a Y Tanaka and have zero regrets. Mine is a lighter rendition though... so I’m kinda jealous of the weight yours is. His heat treat is just insanely good.

I have gotten a bunch of other stuff lately but haven't posted it up. This thing came so thin behind the edge, won't need to thin this down for a long time. Something has to go now to make room.View attachment 116894

Have you tried it? mine just came an hour ago, not your mamas Fujiyama, tall thin beast, way different that my previous Fugi's!
