Are you the person responsible for “The wagyu beef buying guide”? Yes, I am. I’m a long-time poster on the Wagyu board and a well-known expert in that forum. In the spring of 2015, I began to ask questions about the best way to buy Wagyu online and learned about the different cuts (aka sections) of wagyu beef.

Do you ship anywhere? No. At least not right now. We plan to expand our shipping area, so it will be soon if your country still needs to be listed as available!
Where do you get your product from?

For those customers outside Australia looking for a specific amount or location, we will try our best to help them find it via direct contact. Still, please bear with us as sometimes it’s difficult for us both cost-wise and because of parts availability! We will keep working on expanding things, though!

You should also find out where they’re cut from if it’s the same place since that means they have different preparation procedures.
