    Looks like closer to 30% price increase.

    I think it seems their popularity is waning a little and maybe this is a response to that, they aren't doing so well so need to increase their prices. I can only see this making it worse though.

    Really? They can't keep up with demand. Exact opposite.
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!

    The Kono WS 240 was 183.00 for a long time,a good price for a quality carbon blade.Now it looks to be up almost 30%.I really like my Sakai ultra thin WS,paid 206.00 for it.Now the Sakai's are a better deal than the Kono's.

    The price increase makes several purchasing decisions a lot easier now, and removes the sole remaining temptation to buy anything from the store which shall not be named. Thanks!

    The Mizuno Hontanren blue #2 (forged by Akitada) and the konosuke fujiyama blue look like twins to me...

    Glad I didn't see this earlier since I'm focused on a cleaver now. That Misono price increase warning last year caused me to spend some money I didn't have at the time. Not that I regret my 270 Swedish Suji...couldn't resist the dragon!
