its more like ebay than amazon
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?
once in a while you get shown the light, in the strangest of places if you look at it right
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% =
thanks for the info on the sale
got my hankotsu from mari of korin. and yes i'd rather spend a little extra on someone i know.
Just got an email saying they can't fulfill the order, bummer. If anyone is interested in selling one, send me a pm
