PayPal takes about a 10% cut for this transaction from Hong Kong too.
Yeah, right. But don't forget that you have insurance included with PayPal... insurance that is included in your postal service cost most likely, insurance that PayPal will claim back from Postal Service... So, you're paying double insurance, Postal Service and PayPal! What a rip-off! And everybody still loves PayPal!

EDIT: I am now back to envying everyone getting one of these gorgeous knives from Ben despite all the F/X-fuss.

What I am unsure of is whether it is because payment was made during the weekend rather than the weekday. I would guess that weekend exchange rates may have higher costs.

I use Wise now for Fx transactions. Fast and the cheapest option at the moment. PP are the last company I'd use.

What kills me is the shipping and fees for a 595 euro knife to 770.50 swiss franc shipping and fees

Just to be clear - this is in no way any sort of complaint aimed at or implied to our 3 massketeers. It’s just general whinging at The Man who imposes fees and taxes and whatnot. Anybody who buys a $700 knife can afford to pay The Man.

It cost me $921 for the 260 mm. When I googled it I thought it was going to be like $881.
Same here

I never buy any knife for over $500 USD before, but I think this Kamon knife worth it as time goes on. It’s going to be my best All-Rounder knife for sure.

PAID/NOT PAID LIST:

Update: All paypal payments are in. Due to the 2 day timing of bank transfers, we are waiting until tomorrow for funds to arrive in @RockyBasel's account. We will confirm paid when the funds arrive.

BANK TRANSFER PEOPLE: Please (re) send a screenshot of your transaction so we know if/when to expect it. Some have sent it to me already, please reply back to the message so I can keep track.

Thanks all.

Ben, do you have a weight range for each of the two sizes that you could share while we wait (and drool)? 🤤

And congratulations on your charity auctions -- great cause and responses!!
Damn. I always forget to weigh my knives 🙈😅. Should have something between 200-240g I'd say.

And thx a lot about the charity. I'm very happy with it so far. Didn't expect that amount and it still goes on.

The lack of a 1 next to my name is causing me anxiety given how many days ago the bank happily took my money

still waiting to confirm funds but I hear you.
I've added an "s" next to the users who have sent in screenshots of their payment to me so far.

anyway, here is a cute cat pic to soothe your anxiety :)

PAID/NOT PAID LIST:

Update: All payments are in. @RockyBasel has sent funds via bank transfer to @KAMON Knives - which will take 1 to 2 business days. Upon confirmation of funds by @KAMON Knives the knives will be shipped.

Thank you,
