Id be sure to ask my butcher next time because now Im curiuos.
Both the days on grain and the bloodline are important. The following prices ex Vic's Meat Sydney web are:

Security Foods 500 day Grain Fed F1 Wagyu Beef min. Marble 9+

Bone Less Scotch Fillet - approx. 4kg $125.00 per kilo
Strap On Beef Tenderloin - approx. 3kg $125.00 per kilo
Bone Less Striploin approx. 5kg $125.00 per kilo
Rump approx. 6kg $35 per kilo
Oyster Blade approx. 3kg $39.50 per kilo
Chuck Roll approx. 5kg $35 per kilo
Tri-Tip approx. 1.5kg $45 per kilo
Short Rib approx. 1kg $89.50 per kilo

Blackmore 600 day Grain Fed Full Blood Wagyu Beef min. Marble 9+

Bone Less Scotch Fillet - approx. 4kg $160.00 per kilo
Strap On Beef Tenderloin - approx. 3kg $160.00 per kilo
Bone Less Striploin approx. 5kg $160.00 per kilo
Rump approx. 6kg $49.50 per kilo
Oyster Blade approx. 3kg $49.50 per kilo

As you can see both products have similar grain feeding (500 & 600 day) and fat content (9+) but the Full Blood is about a third dearer!!!
