Tanaka B1 Sekiso 210 - SOLD!

Post by nakneker » Mon Nov 12, 2018 1:42 pm

I have Tanaka 210 Sekiso in B1 that came with a nice handle on it. Used a couple times and touched up on a Cerax 6k. I bought it new. I’m gravitating towards 240s and 270s, so I’m letting this knife go. Its a fantastic performer. Comes with the original box.

I’m asking 150.00 shipped priority. Thanks for looking.

I've got the 240, and I love how it cuts.

I have the 240 also and it's one of the best knives I've ever used at any price. Great grind and core steel. Whoever gets this is lucky.

I thought the Sekiso were all B2. Interesting that he started using B1.

Pretty sure that is a B2 and just an honest mistake by Sean.

If not, I'd be interested to know! I realize it has a somewhat "foreign" handle and I know that some Tanakas from other dealers (particular Australia, I think?) come with different handles. I don't really follow all the retailers, but it is always nice to know what options exist out there. But yes: I thought it might be a mistake, just because I have never seen this Tanaka work with B1, and I know smiths as good as he is just don't randomly forge new steels without mastering them first (and I know B1 takes some real effort to master).

Jeff is probably right. I label everything when I receive it and I’m sure I messed up. I’m glad you guys know me well enough to say, “that’s just Sean” most people that know me well say that a lot.

I'm pretty sure it's B#2, and regardless, it's still a great knife, at a good price, and a nice handle to boot!

Yes: to be clear, I wasn't trying to throw any of that in jeopardy. I was just curious if "this" Tanaka really had started using B1, and I also believe it is in everyone's best interest to clear up an error if one exists. It seemed like a very odd fit and a surprising turn, but I respect nakneker's interest in the craft enough to doubt my own knowledge first.

I think we all know of makers and brands which keep certain steels and iterations exclusive to individual makers. A lot of times, that can lead to confusion, but sharing knowledge helps clear all that up over time!
