    I've never order from Cabin house. They look to have interesting merchandise.

    The Japanwoodworker is now Woodcraft, they were purchased several years ago, price are higher.

    www.hidatool.com is I believe still a family owned tool shop in berkely (they were founded by an original partner too japanwoodworker, long ago, if I'm correct)

    www.toolsfromjapan.com is a shop in Japan that sells good stuff.

    I've ordered from the last 3.

    See you there! Then stop by my house.

    Combine it with a trip to the amazing Takenaka carpentry tools museum in nearby Kobe:

    I like dealing with Hida Tools in Berkley CA. They offer a very diversified line of Japanese tools.
