Our Price: $210.00
The Tanaka Kurouchi line of knives are excellent values combining the rustic character of handcraftsmanship with the exceptional edge taking and edge holding of Aogami #2 at an extremely competitive price. As with all knives in this line, this 240mm gyuto is clad construction with the Aogami #2 steel core hardened to 62-63 HRC wrapped in a soft carbon steel cladding. While the rustic kurouchi finish does reduce oxidation, both the core and cladding steels are reactive so the knife will patina with normal use. The d-shaped handle is a utilitarian design made with ho wood and a black plastic ferrule. As these are handmade knives, each knife may differ from the posted specifications.

    Good forward weight and geometry to the knife. Basic handle. Very stiff. Exactly what I wanted.

      great knife for the money, July 20, 2017
    Posted By: Robert - verified customer

    This is a good knife. The grind wasn't perfect, but was close enough that I could smooth out the curve of the edge and put a scary sharp edge. The handle is about what you expect for the price, but I didn't buy it to be a show piece. After prepping a few meals with it for my family I feel good about adding this workhorse of a knife to my collection.

      tanaka 240, September 29, 2016
    Posted By: Sam Diab - verified customer

    So, i ahve had this knife for about a year and a half, and finaly got around to writing this reveiw. The tanaka 240 is an amazing knife, and an amazing deal. It takes a screaming sharp edge with little to no work. My only complaint was the handle. But, I ordered a new handle, installed it, and it is now my go to knife. you do have to be carefull, as it is a fully reactive blade, but with proper care and maintenence, it develops a beautiful patina.

      Good knife, slightly rusted , August 30, 2016

    The knife has developed very little rust on the blade with only about 4 uses. Even with proper cleaning and drying after uses. Excellent knife however.

    This is an excellent knife. Fit& finish is rough but if you spend 5-10 minutes with some sandpaper, you will end up with a knife that resembles (and performs!) like one costing nearly twice as much. HIGHLY recommended!

      Great buy!, July 7, 2016

    This is an amazing deal for quality blue steel. The edge OOTB is not amazing, but after 5 minutes on the stones it was razor sharp. It seems to be quite reactive though as it left a patina on the kurouchi finish, where my thumb was while I was sharpening. The handle is probably exactly what you would expect from this pricepoint, but I've already sanded mine down a bit around the plastic ferrel. The knife is blade heavy but not overly so. It chops through produce like a champ, even before I put a better edge on it. It seems like it is a nice middle of the road edge for cutting technique as I have tried push and rock cutting with no problems. This is my first carbon steel knife from CKTG, but it won't be my last. Want to make all your fellow cooks jealous without breaking the bank? This might just me the one for you.

      Excellent Work Horse, February 5, 2015

    First I'm not a Chef just a home cook who prefers Carbon Steel. This is not a pretty knife until you use it then it becomes VERY PRETTY . I bought this after buying the 210 mm and really liking the edge holding and sharpness of the Blue
