    Smile Store with affordable international shipping?

    Hello guys. I'm interested in getting the famous Victorinox 8" Chef, 8" bread and 3.75 or 4 paring knives but all online sellers i looked seem to charge 45-100 USD in shipping costs to Argentina. Do you know of any reputable store with affordable shipping? My alternative is looking on eBay where each knife shipping is about 10 usd which is the standard rate i'm used to pay.

    Thanks a lot and happy new year!

    Not for Victorinox, but for Japanese knives:
    japanesechefsknife.com
    applies a flat rate of US$7

    Thanks Benu, awesome site for 100+ USD blades. A coworker loved it :-), but i'm looking for more mundane knives, ie, the 3 knives i plan to get from Victorinox are less than 90 USD in total!

    Hey fellow countryman, that is cheap! I guess that is ordinary mail? Any idea what they charge for mail with track-and-trace?

    From their site:

    We will basically ship your order
    directly from Japan via EMS (speed
    post, insured). It will usually take
    only 3-5 days to arrive you. As soon
    as the shipment is made, we will e-
    mail you the EMS tracking number,
    and you can trace it at EMS Trace
