Takayuki offered me an interesting deal when I met with them in Sakai. They are going to work on a customized drop ship program where we will be able to allow people to choose their knife with a great deal of options and they will ship it within a couple weeks (I don't believe this but they have the blades done and stocked for these so maybe). Here is a list of the options that we will be able to offer.

Knife:
Yanagi 240mm, 270mm, 300mm
Deba 150mm, 180mm, 210mm
Usuba 150mm, 180mm, 210mm

Steel:
Blue 2
White 2
Silver 3

Finish:
Satin
Mirror

Handle:
D Shape Ho
Octagonal Ho
Octagonal Ebony

I'm going to see if they can do no handle as an option too. This is going to take some development work to make it work on our website but if it all works it will give us an unmatched selection of Japanese knives from Sakai customized just the way the customer wants them with short lead times compared with other makers.

If we get it worked out we might be able to do something similar for my knives or other ones that have some custom options.
