Bluewayjapan on ebay....but they're out of stock at the moment. They're pretty inexpensive too. $260ish
i got mine through the ashi website, and as far as i know he takes all custom orders.
I have been getting Heiji knives direct from Nakayaheiji. Because of living in Australia, it doesn't make much sense to go via Jon (and pay for too many shipping cost) as much as I'd love to support him.
Thank you everyone!! You have been more than helpful with this itch of mine :doublethumbsup:
Main parameter: 240 Grams
My main consideration is that it shld not be heavier ( a tad is OK) than a German chef knife.
Both Handles: Western handle
Both: stainless steel. Swedish steel
Have fun and stay sharp....
Its pretty sweet that they can make cleavers that light!
Another choice that might fit the criteria is a Tojiro pro cleaver. good fit and finish in VG10. You can get them via blueway.
