So, I'm a canadian, living in Canada and looking for a knife. And that means, you know.. duty, taxes, shipping and currency exchange ...
From what I know, I have to pay a 6.5% duty + taxes to import a knife ... But there should be an exemption for products made in USA
Does anybody have an official list of which products are made in the US ? I know some Richmond are but ... I'm looking at an exhaustive list to really begin shopping (And that could prove useful as a reference for other Canadians)
Does anybody knows if the taxes are waived too if it' made in the US ? That would make a huge difference..
And what value is written on the customs declaration ? Could it be lesser than the actual value ?
Anyway, knifewise, I prefer a wa handled and I like the idea and look of the carbon/SS clad, like on the Hiromoto
. Sounds like a good compromise between Carbon blade and SS convenience. I'm looking for a 240mm gyuto, preferably SS
Thanks again for your help
