    Never used a Moritaka before. Seeing the word "favorite", I almost commited to a purchase, but I'm thinking it's the opposite and they suffer from poor grind issues?

    Yeah, I've used Rakuten a fair amount here in Japan, but U.S. buyers are probably better off with American vendors in most cases.

    I do see some of Sakai Yusuke's stuff qualifies, but not their gyuto or petty knives.

    If jck had what i was looking for, i would use them. Peace of mind, good qc, cheap shipping, friendly helpful service, and non gibberish website more than make up for any price difference, which is minimal from what ive seen.

    The shipping offer is nice, if you're buying from abroad and considering the convenience of the Ratuken site (that is, if you can find your way around on it). Not to burst the bubble, but if are able to contact the sellers directly I think they would normally give you free shipping anyway. A standard offer for sizable purchases. Actually, they would be happy to, as I think they'd make more money from a direct sale than through Ratuken.

    Labor of love, I think this might be what you're looking for. I'm not sure of shipping, but the price is right.

    +1 I'd rather buy without confusion, and have complete faith in a proven vendor, than save a few bucks....but that's just me.
