Hello my first time listing anything on this site. I have for sale a Yoshikazu Tanaka W2 Kurouchi extra height. With Jobone custom handle, Rosewood Cocobolo. NIB I know I will truly regret selling this one but I have found another Unicorn. You can move right or left but it is hard to move forward from a knife like this. The grind the taper crazy thin behind the edge, form function everything you expect it will be. The taller height Kurouchi are a bit hard to come by. I have over $520.00 invested. My camera isn't the best so I hope the pictures are good enough. If you think you might be interested do send me a PM
I am asking $430.00 shipped Conus.
Specs Heel to tip 233mm
Height 55mm at the heel
Spine at the heel 3.1 midway 2.4 tip 1.2

I am just curious how the sharpener has dealt with the taper on this particular line. No stress, whenever you have time. Cheers

I had a request for a few different pictures. Great knife aesthetically straight forward. Even with the extra height I would describe the feel as a nimble middle weight work horse. It has a very kinetic feel. I hope these pictures are good enough to give a true sense to the knife
