Interesting. I wanted to try one, should have bought one in December when there was the 5% discount. Didn't know the prices would increase in January.
A Blue#2 240mm was 390$, with the discount 372$. In January they were 440$ so you had an increasement of over 10%. For me that is close to 80€ more.
Now they go again up by 20%. That's a no from me, no longer interested.
Would I have read they would increase that much in January I would have bought one in December sale.
I’ve wondered for a while if I should get one; the only Mizuno I’ve had was a Blue 1 san mai KS style and I bought that very close in time to my Raquin: two ~250mm gyuto, both very pointy, both thin but not lasers, Raquin is taller, so I let it go. Now I guess would be the time — Let’s have a Mizuno debate?
Saw the mail too, and yes nice gesture by Koki. I bought a blue #1 210mm a few months ago, right at the same time when buying a Watanabe. Been thinking about selling the Mizuno, but will now probably wait until the price increase is a fact.
