    Shigefusa makes such beautiful knives. I regret selling my 250mm gyuto.

    OOO!!!!! that knife is certainly a unicorn for me: something I've been chasing for a long time. Did I do the currency conversion correctly that the price is $1,310 in USD?

    In the upper left-hand corner of the page, you can choose to display prices in USD (or Euro). It says "$1,252.50" if you do so, but you'll probably pay a bit more with Paypal.

    Ah, thanks for the tip on the currency conversion feature, markenki!

    Yeah, bieniek, Shige pricing has really gone though the roof in the past few years. Supply and demand and a bit of hype all play into this. I would say that a few years ago Shiges where under priced: you where getting single-custom maker quality at high-end factory pricing. This meant that when one came available, it was a no-brained to buy it. Now however, prices have put shiges into a whole different ballpark in terms of their competition. For +/- a few bucks you could have a full custom from any number of world-class, top-quality American or Japanese makers like Michael Rader, Devin Thomas, Bill Burke.

    I purchased a 270mm Kasumi wa-guyto a couple years ago, and this 210 western is almost 2X the price I paid. I understand that westen integral bolsters will always add a big price-jump but this is a bit too rich for my blood.

    Justin, you make some good points, but is it fair to compare the price of a wa kasumi two years ago to a kitaeji integral western today?
