Isn’t Toyama way more expensive
I keep looking at them maybe I’m looking at the wrong knives
TF Denka is more expensive than Toyama. In fact Denka even costs more than Toyama Damascus.
Watanabe is about the same price as Toyama after upgrading to comparable handle and adding postage.
A 240 Toyama is $395.46 at JNS; a 240 Watanabe at Carbon Knife Company is $345.00. Both with magnolia handles and horn ferrules and shipping included. Both are out of stock.
Lol. I just saw that it was 395$. I think I must have been looking at something else. I thought I saw them for close to a 1000$
The honyaki is $882.18.
With the JNS sale a couple weeks ago on the Toyama and the ridiculous increase in TF you could've probably bought both a Watanabe and a Toyama for the price of a TF
I was referring to the prices direct from Watanabe where a 240 gyuto with the cheapest horn handle is around $380 shipped.
The Watanabe knives at Carbon Knife Co are a great deal. The 210 gyutos in stock are cheaper than direct from Shinichi.
