do you know what length you want? as weird as it sounds the difference between 270mm and 300mm sujis seem to be night and day. atleast for me, in my very limited experience using them.i much prefer 300mm for sujis.
Check out EE's Blazen 270 suji.
Check w/ Keiichi @ Blue Way Japan for a Yusuke (on ebay). He sells 300, 270, 240 & 210 suji's in white #2 wa handle (but not much in stock ATM). If you want stainless, he can have them make their Swedish SS 61HRC for a small fee (normally 58HRC). If you want a western handle, I'm sure he can have that made too. Excellent knives, and best value for mono steel blades.
Or simply ask JBro! He's got several options in stock. mpp

Why not give Jon a call at JKI?

With the Carter, is the blade length really a blade or edge?
I just got answer from Koki, saying I could order 270 version of Masamoto KS
Yeah, there's an 8.5 sun Carter available that's 257mm on the edge, which is pretty much how long a 270 Suji is.
Jon can prolly get you one of these: http://www.japaneseknifeimports.com/...-sujihiki.html
Masamoto KS from JCK is a good option, but it's only stocked in 240mm.
Watanabe shows a 270 Suji in stock, it may be in blue steel though.

Yeah, but it can be ordered in 270, takes 45 days to arrive
I must see that watanabe.
I heard some rumours about watanabe ordering their blades from outside? I mean not producing them... Could that be true?
