    Has Konosuke Stopped Accepting Direct Orders from International Customers?

    A quick run of the text at the following link leads me to believe so, but I can't read Japanese. Can anyone confirm this? Was I under a rock?

    If I read that right (translation) he is just doing orders for local.

    its actually that they stopped selling within japan because foreign sales have taken off so much and they are working hard to support that.

    Jon,

    Thanks for clearing that up. That was what Google translator seemed to indicate, but that had me confused.

    That was my suspicion.

    You have to go through a US based distributor to get them.

    Got it. On a related note--and I ask this as an innocent inquiry, not wishing to provoke--it seems that either **** is offering Fujiyama knives at deep discounts-20% to 30% plus, depending on the knife--over Konosuke's direct order prices, or that they are selling "Hawk" knives as "Fujiyama." The 270 "Fujiyama white #2" that **** lists at $399, for example, would cost 39,000 yen ($500 if my currency conversion is correct) plus shipping, while the "Hawk" white steel version of the same knife costs the equivalent of $402 before shipping. Anyone know which is the case?

    Are there any alternate distributors to ****?
