Tojiro SD Broodmes 22 cm · Gratis Gegraveerd (I'd shoot them an email before ordering from them because it says 22 in some spots, 27 in others; the picture looks like the 27).

Meesterslijpers also has the often mentioned alternative from Mac:


There might be others...and it's worth considering that buying straight from Japan is potentially cheaper.

Yes. Maybe someone else knows cheaper options within Europe; I didn't do an exhaustive search... but generally speaking the retail price is significantly higher in Europe.
Problem is that if you buy from US, you get [email protected] 3 new buttholes on the cost of shipping + customs, so especially for lower-cost items it's never worth it. From Japan it can still be cheaper, but you'll have to do the math first how much you're actually saving. Exchange rate to dollars is crap right now so you'll get the best deals from places that originally sell in yens.
