It was about 9 steaks total, after they cut it. The cost of the rib roast was $3,400.

I didn't say "Kobe", I said "Wagyu"...as did Wampus?
Also do not get the point you seem to be trying to make?
Are you saying Tajimagyu is superior to say Miyazakigyu?
It isn't at all.
Kobe beef isn't superior to Australia's top grade wagyu either.
6 years ago an Australian 'sparkling' took out the $200 open category in France.
It costs $22 here.
