    Can someone help me find where to buy this yanagi in japan? Brand = 佐文 (sabun)

    Ok, a while ago I posted a pic of a yanagi. Dr Naka replied with this

    In Japan it is sold for 22400JPY if it is mirror finish.

    Now I want to buy this exact knife again to replace my friends. I followed the link but I cannot understand it. I have a friend in japan who will order it online for me, but doesn't know anything about knives so doesn't want to search for it. I just need someone to find the exact link to the type of knife I am looking for so that I can send it to him to complete the transaction.

    Looking for the stainless version in 300mm. Anybody able to help me out? Thanks so much.

    I don't know if this will help but Google Translate says it's a Masao brand knife (if I'm reading this right)?

    This is the "translated" page for the link Dr. Naka provided:

    This is the link to the 300mm "Masao" knife via Google Translate:

    Please verify this with someone else first. Sorry that I couldn't be of more help.
    I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates who said: "I drank what?"

    (Note the '3' at the end of my link, the '2' at the end of yours.

    Just a thought Slowtyper. If your friend can't find this knife themselves, even with a good solid link like you gave here, I have to wonder whether they'll be able to handle the intricacies of international shipping with Japan Post. Finding that knife was, literally, two clicks. Once at the top for the size range, the next at the right steel/size.

    Good luck with it.
