The Tanaka Blue #2 line of knives is an excellent value combining the handcraftsmanship with the exceptional edge taking and edge holding of Aogami #2. As with all knives in this line, this 210mm gyuto uses top of the line Aogami #2 steel core hardened to 62-63 HRC. It is finished off with a nice walnut octagonal handle.

      Good balance, April 17, 2022
    Posted By: Ray

    Nicely executed. I wanted to try out a slightly more "meaty" profile vs. quasi lasers, and this one performed great as a middle ground. Performs almost as well as some thinner Kohetsu knives. Edges on the spine could be relieved a little more, but files sand paper fixes that quickly.

    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
    Posted By: Dakota santos - verified customer

    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.

      Crazy Value, July 11, 2016
    Posted By: Chris - verified customer

    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
    Posted By: Kevin Henderson - verified customer

    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
    Posted By: Richard RP - verified customer

    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
