These knives are cheaper than any of the best German forged steel knives and they are twice the cutting tool. You can only get them from Japan. The website below is actually located in Japan. I've ordered countless knives from them, so I will vouch for their great customer service & super fast (and cheap) shipping.
Hope this helps.
Wow, first time I have ever seen another person know about this...just minutes ago I PMed someone about Fujiwara!
I am a long time client of Koki and Gem too, they are brilliant to deal with.
Great work kcmike!
