    Heiji

    Hi guys,

    I just got ordered one from him and in case you are interested in a Heiji knife direct from himself, here are his most recent prices. I'm not sure if they are posted elsewhere and if so my apologies:

    Gyuto240mm in Sweden steel is 26250JPY. Semi-stainless is 23100JPY.

    Gyuto270mm in Sweden steel is 36750JPY. Semi-stainless is 31500JPY.
    I ordered the 270mm semi-stainless for 31500 + 1600 (paypal) + 2040 (shipping to AU) yen

    Although we talked in Japanese, I think his English is pretty good.
    He said it will be a 4 month wait. Never waited this long for a knife before.. here's to waiting 4 months for a knife!

    4 months is nothing in terms of waiting for a custom knife.

    It's incredibly quick, in my mind. Nice grab.

    ryann,
    Thanks for the info.
    But does this price quotes included with Saya?

    Thanks

    Michael, it doesn't include a saya. I imagine it'd be similar ro what Watanabe charges for a saya because every knife is unique.

    So much cooler getting knives direct from the makers themselves, innit?

    How complicated would this be to do for someone with no Japanese? Would someone mind directing me the contact info (by PM if necessary)?
