    sometimes, but its more like a lot of the e-bay buy now thing... amazon is much more strict about its sellers than ebay

    Nice to know, I have ordered twice and it was the same vendor Takashi though both orders were for Shig's. I was kind of picturing what Newegg has turned into, either way definitely appreciate the heads up as I would have considered them very safe. I guess the purchase still is as long as you use paypal?
    Cheers

    I got my sugimoto cleaver from the same vendor on Rakuten.
    It was shipped though EMS and came in one week. No problems to report other then shipping was a bit more then expected ($30), he shipped the knife in a pretty large box. Took a week to get to Canada, pretty fast imho.

    Having a quick look through knives and stones on the site it seems they are having a general sale at the moment. 35% off most items, 25% off some others.... (Some of the auto translations are brilliant)

    eg: Masamoto HS less 35% =

    This is a great option IMO. I'd much rather deal with some one I know I can trust and count on.
