My web manager who was helping getting the machine in: "You know those rescue documentaries about people saving baby elephants? Now I know how they feel. First world baby elephants."

With the strength of about 10 men, our amazing warehouse guys lifted the machine up 2 steps. lol
Customers were trapped inside for a few minutes.

Yaaay! This thing is a little wider than our old machine. I wonder if our sharpeners will have enough space...

Thanks for reading. :)

Is it new? If so where would I be able to find one or even a used one?

As soon as I read this I felt sorry for the delivery guys trying to park over there:scared4:. What a beast of a machine, can I play with it Mari?

Yes, its new. :D We purchased our's Japan through Mr. Sugai's grand master. I'm not sure where you would be able to find a used one, but I would not recommend purchasing an older one. The reason we changed our's is because one of our vendors told us we are supposed to change the stone every 2 years, but we couldn't change the stone on our older machine.

I know, me too! Not to mention, I was just taking picture because they wouldn't let me help.
The plug is different from our last one, so its actually not up and running yet. LOL

Yes, please come visit. :) I found out yesterday that these machines are actually all/mostly custom made.
