Hi there,

I'm interested in the Shibata Kotetsu 240mm gyuto. Just was wondering if you'd be willing to post to Europe if I cover the postage costs?


Hi Max,

I once shipped a knife to JNS and it was returned to me by the carrier after a month because it can’t be shipped in Denmark. Which country are you in? Do you have any experience in receiving a knife from the US in the past that I can learn from?


I've actually found another option for this knife now which works out cheaper as it's not from the US. However, yes I have had knives shipped in from the US before and it seemed fairly straight forward from my perspective - just had to pay import duty when it arrived...But there may be additional paperwork required from the sender.


I bought my R2 Kurosaki from Japanny. Reliable but a bit expensive. You may consider this very similar knife. Kurosaki fujin
It comes from a Dutch web shop. They are legit.
You should know that at the moment (covid) international shipping can be an issue.
