I've already got someone to call him last month. Those photos are old. There is nothing for sale. You go there and order and after he makes the knife (who knows when), they will send it to you.

You need to call ahead and make an appointment before the visit.

Not sure if this will affect production but I was told on Tuesday that his mother died last week. He was meant to be at the JKG knife show today in Ginza (biggest knife show in Japan. Mainly custom knives. In Japan, custom knives often refers to outdoor knives), but they aren't sure if he is going to be there anymore.
