Tanaka Blue 2 Nashiji Gyuhiki (line knife) 225mm Stainless Clad

Another collaboration between Tanaka and K&S Customers. Why I say it is the result of K&S customers? Because only with the help of my fellow customers that I am able to convince Tanaka-san about the genuine need in the market of this Blue 2 with stainless clad line. This line is the latest work between me and Tanaka-san, so combined with previous feedback from customers, the B2 stainless line basically have the following features:

* Forged Hitachi Blue 2 steel, superb cutting performance and easy to sharpen

* Nashiji finish is quite special to Tanaka knives, gives a very unique rustic feel 

* K&S treatment with rounded spine and choil


Always thought that Tanaka blades are great value with poor F&F? Think again! 

For a long time I tought the same, and this is the reason I was not able to fully commit on carrying all the other ranges of Tanaka knives other than the western R2 line. For a long time, I wish I could offer the great value and cutting performance of Tanaka knives with a much improved F&F, and I finally done it: I am proud to offer you the K&S Tanaka knives. Same maker, same great cutting performance, same unbeatable value, but a much better overall finished Tanaka. 

So what I have achieved? 

  • Rounded spine and choil a standard, no more harsh edge;
  • An awesome newly designed K&S semi-custom handle a standard. 
  • Same great value!
