    Masamoto gyutos on rakuten.

    Not sure about the rules regarding direct links, so I won't post any. But Yamakawa have some Masamoto KS and swedish stainless wa gyutos in stock for pretty good prices. I picked up a KS gyuto from them earlier in the year and they were pretty quick to ship and easy to deal with; don't come with the saya though.

    I was kinda tempted to get the stainless version, but I didn't care much for the KS in the first place, so...meh.

    Cheers and sorry if I broke any rules.

    Unless it's on GLOBAL rakuten, the ordering system doesn't allow for international orders.

    Just do a google search for "rakuten store yamakawa", should come up with a link to their shop front. And it is on Global Rakuten, dunno where they ship to, but if they do Australia, I'd imagine most places.

    Wow that is a very competitive price. I paid a lot more for my Masamoto SW.

    They ship around the world. No discount shipping like you might get from a few other notable sellers in Japan though, and they will declare full value for customs.

    True. I just received a 240 KS from them for $201, shipping $12 to the U.S. Ordering process was smooth as silk---it really helps if you sign up for a Rakuten membership first. They have the 240 Swedish for $220.

    Korin's price on the Swedish is $358 normally, $304 (15% off) for July.

    sub $200 for a 240mm SKD hammered, bargain. Although I much prefer the kasumi personally.

    There are some very interesting Yoshikanes on there - A blue #1 suminagashi with a forged integral bolster and western handle resembling the type seen on some vintage Sheffields. Expensive mind!
