Hi all,

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

Well, I think your first task will be figuring out what qualifies as "Made in the USA" under NAFTA guidelines. Could be any number of nuances that might change the recommendations there.

Pitts> there is no way around this... we canadians are going to have to suck it up and pay our customs,, taxs always seem minimal to me on my orders... often the price outlined in the shipping documentation is NOT reflective of what funds were provided for your goods.. shipping is usually about 25$ base and then goes up about 5$ per additional item unless its a heavy stone... just take the plunge and i can assure you wont be dissapointed in the service from cktg... i have probably 10 or more purchases with them and im in canada too... sure there are other retailers out there with some of the same oferings.. some in canada even, some further abroad... but the real key to success here is the level of customer service this company provides...

I think you meant you prefer a yo(western) handle. If you are interest in the Hiromoto now is the time to get it. These knives are no longer being made and once the stock runs out that's it forever. It is a very good knife at a practical price and is a Classic Old War Horse that will be missed once it's gone!

Yeah .. I don't really know how those exemptions are applied ... Did somebody bought something like the [url-=http://www.chefknivestogo.com/riad2ae24gym.html]Richmond Addict 2 AEBL[/url] from Canada ? I'm intrigued if both taxes and duties applies ... And what value is on the package.

and I really meant "Wa", the hiromoto was just an example of a blade which seems as good as beautiful.

thanks.

Thanks for the clarification Pitts. Not the first time I've been off base. :D
