I'm fully aware of the link you gave as that was where I planned to get the Tojiro DP. There are only 2 dealers in my country, one the website you gave me and another which is very near to where I live. Maybe I'll ask if they can somehow get the Tojiro DP imported for me haha. I really wanted to hold the knife in person before purchasing and if I can't then I'll take a risk and buy it from peteskitchenwareMillionsKnives is right about the "Pro" DP line. Same blade (sanmai cladded construction), different handle, higher price and probably higher profit margins to the distributor and/or retailer.
I would not bother with the "color coded" knives. Plain old Molybdenum Vanadium steel may be okay for European quality knives, but aren't in the same quality range as VG-10 core steel knives.
You might want to look at Pete's Kitchenwares for the Tojiro DP 240 mm gyuto, Model F-809 at RM362.00. The website for the F-809 is: http://peteskitchenwares.com/product/f809-chef-knife/
Hope that helps.
