Where, how to purchase gomboy?
« on: March 07, 2016, 06:46:56 AM »
Thought I read a reference on this site wrt purchase of a gomboy, through the site, or in a way that would benefit the site, but can't seem to find it now?  Need one mostly for pine pruning, also a bypass hand snip, possibly okatsune.  If I can buy in a way to benefit JGO I would like to do so.

Can someone tell me where is this info?

Thanks.

Stanton,
Niwaki.com is one source. It is owned by Jake Hobson in UK. I have done business with him and he has very good products and does ship to US. Jake is a forum member and supports the forum.
Hide.com is another source in Berkeley Calif.
obcnw.com is a source for Okasune. They are located in Canby Oregon and have had very good prices on Okasune.
I have also had good results with Stone Lantern in your part of the country.

I second the motion for Jake and Niwaki.

Also in California and on line is Hida Tool at https://www.hidatool.com/

If you want to save a few bucks, bigbeartools.com is a Canadian distributor.  Canadian dollars, not sure what shipping is to the Sates.
