    We are trying to implement something and discussing with our POS system provider as I type. This is very exciting...

    Can I make a suggestion? I think it would be exciting for Korin to have specials from time to time like JCK does. JCK's specials are usually very interesting with respect to steel, handles, profiles and geometry. It's nice to see variety not to mention, you guys may find the next "It" knife.

    Awesome suggestion! Thank you! I will bring this idea up to management and push for it.

    I have one supplier I get stuff from (fishing rod business) and use their online ordering system. If I add an item to the cart and then remove it, it will often find it's way back into the cart at the checkout phase, even if I saved the shopping cart after I removed the item. Other times, I select an item and it adds a completely different item to the cart. Drives me nuts!!!!

    I second or third the idea of having special items, different steels, handles, etc!!

    No but seriously, i haven't had any experience with Korin, as i haven't found you to be as competitive as other stores when it comes to international buyers.
    Perhaps you should try to expand in this market?

    Like shipping from Japan as mentioned earlier, i'm used to pay like 7 bucks for shipping from Koki, so paying like 40-50+bucks from Korin isn't really that competitive, especially when the product itself is often a few dollars more expensive. (but that's what's needed when you have physical stores)

    Hello hello,
    Sorry I've been missing for sometime and not contributing to this community as much as I would like to.

    I recently noticed a comment about our sales people being rude or condescending, so I wanted to apologize for any ill feelings, disappointments, and frustrations. I hope this person was referring to an experience he had several year ago and not recently. Not that it makes it acceptable, but we our staff has changed since.

    If for any reason any of you ever feel like you were not taken care of by our staff, please let me know via PM or email. I may not be the most active or most knowledgeable participant (I have so much to learn) in this community, but I will always do my best to take care of you.

    As always thank you for reading,
    Mari

    I am a happy online customer from a few years ago. I bought a Masamoto VG-10 210 gyuto after a cooks illustrated article. My first introduction to the world of Japanese knives...
