The notice at CKtG says "Please note we can only ship Tojiro knives in the USA.". Mark and Susan cannot ship Tojiro knives outside the US. If you want a Tojiro and you live in Canada you have to buy one from a Canadian dealer, not CKtG.

Wonder why it is only the knives...I received the Tojiro sink bridge no problem.

International companies do this all the time. They have an agreement in place with their distribution channel partners that is intended to protect the distributors/resellers in a particular region. If Mark wants to keep selling their products he has to abide by their rules. Often times it will be focused on the primary product lines and not apply to accessories to the lines.

Tojiro gave us rights to sell in the USA only. They want to have distributors for each country and want to be able to control who sells them. Originally they didn't care but last year they asked us to put that message on the site to keep our sales primarily in the USA.
