    Dang that Shigehiro Suminagashi Blue #1 165mm Petty looks so tempting but just having purchased three knives has my wife in a bit of a tizzy. Have any of you ever heard your wife say "no more knives"? ;-( Looks like I'll have to wait a month or so ;-)

    Sam, Do you take orders for the Shigefusa Kurouchi Santoky 165mm and if so can I take advantage of the 20% off Friends and Family Weekend?

    So far I've only been getting "The look" ... and I think I do detect a certain pattern of her doing online shopping after going to bed the days after one of my knife purchases. I have alerts set up for all credit cards, and the number of alert messages are a lot higher on those 3 days or so AKP (after knife purchase) ...

    That's funny but with my wife the eldest daughter of parents that just barely survived the last Great Depression she likes save (and we are in our 70's). She is just finally accepting that the Konosuke Petty and the Teruyasu Fujiwara Petty I bought for her are better knives than her older Globals and German knives.

    She laughs when I tell her not to cut the veggies so I can break out my Jknives and assist with meals!

    I just tried to make a purchase for sharpening a 7" knife (shipping on me) but it said the coupon code expired.

    The knife is 165mm or 6.4" but guessing the gets rounded up?

    I have been lusting after a pair of those kitchen shears since I saw them. Are you planning on getting more?

    Also when I go to check out with the buyer ship selection, it's defaulting to the $20 shipping charge instead of just the service charge.

    Same here. Been one of those weekends but wanted to get this done. I'm going to go full rate and ask you to sort it out at your end.

    International shipping from the U.S., in actual shipping costs, is significantly more expensive than it likely needs to be. Seeing as though knives will always ship for free in the U.S., I decided to absorb most of the international shipping on knives as well.

    Diets exist only in relative terms.

    Unfortunately, no. I've decided to not play the Shigefusa game for now. I've found every Shigehiro knife to perform on par with, if not better than, every Shigefusa I've owned. Shigehiro blades are also far less reactive.

    Ah! I don't know how this happened, but I've fixed it now. My apologies.

    Yes! Though, they won't arrive for another month or two. If you add yourself to the waiting list, you'll immediately receive an e-mail notification when they're back in stock.

    Dave, you happened to hit the same error as above. I've since fixed it. I've received your order and will shortly be processing the discount as a refund to you.

    The code went a bit nuts. I'm not sure if it was from use or my own coding error. Anyway, because of this, I'm extending the 20% discount code until tomorrow afternoon. My apologies to everyone that encountered this issue. The code is working again!
