Stark difference between tojiro knife prices, and I'm unsure why

Hi there. I'm looking to buy myself a nice knife for my birthday and after reading around a little, it sounds like a Tojiro would be a good choice. However I'm a little confused by the pricing.

From the Tojiro site, the prices seem to range from around 80-180.

tojiro.co.uk/cgi-bin/tj.cgi?Command=ListProducts&db_cid=2&Start=10




Whereas the site below seems to sell them from around 30+

nipponkitchen.com/acatalog/Tojiro_DP_Range.html




Are the cheaper ones of non-comparable quality, and is there a way I can tell ?



(Apologies for the non-parsed links I haven't been here long enough to post proper ones, they may need "www." putting on the beginning)

it could be that the other site sells the older models. I got a knife from that site, not a tojiro though. I'm pretty happy with the quality.

The MSRP must assume a high mark up. Those prices are comparable to the prices at Korin or Japanese Knife.
