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:

* Latest B2 line with Migaki finish and full convex grind

* Kanji reads 田中诚贵作(Shinko Shigeki Made), with Shinko being the K&S house brand, showing this is a genuine collaboration between Tanaka and K&S. 

* K&S treatment with rounded spine and choil

* Able to customize handle design and add a K&S hardwood saya

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

 

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!
