I got a LOT of emails and PMs about the possibility of carrying the Kurouchi version of the blue 2 Tanaka blades. Reason is people find the damascus version being a little bit reactive in some cases. I have always resisted of bringing in that line because I just cannot tolerate myself selling the stock handle (plastic ferrule version), which has a huge "step" between the handle and the ferrule. 

Well K&S is all about listening to our customers, and here is what I came up with!

The popular Tanaka Kurouchi Blue 2 blade, with K&S treatment and a custom K&S octagonal Teak handle: a complete Tanaka KU package, and still packed with value!

===============

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.
