I need some help. When I go to Japan I want to bring some gifts to my many suppliers (I'm meeting with 8 companies). Any suggestions on what to bring?

The main requirement is small size. I can't be bringing 8 big teddy bears on the plane with me. :)

I have a couple ideas but you guys often come up with better suggestions.

Maybe you can give them pictures of their knives being used or displayed by their happy owners

Get something made by local artisans that represents where you live (maybe something you might find at local farmer's market)....or get Pierre to make eight more of those straight razors :D

As part of your offerings, what about some small, but really unique cutting boards from your friend Mr. Loftis at Lone Star Artisans. I don't know how heavy they would be, but maybe he could ship them to your hotel in Japan or something. They sure look amazing on his web site!
