if you know some one in Tokyo, ask them to pop into the NBTHK museum, they have small bits for around $25.
all modern, and low quality but nice

Indeed. They have bits of various size.
The most difficult task, when you go there for the first time, is to locate the Museum!
Funny story: I wanted to pruchase sword bags at the Museum (they have nice and affordable ones), and the lady asked me for which kind of sword I required bags. When I replied that it was for gunto, she was positively horrified, and when I specified kyu gunto, she looked at me as if I was demented. She flatly refused to sell me any sword bag.
Strangely, at the Yasukuni shrine, people were far more open-minded about gunto... I really do not know why

I've seen it on ebay as well, not sure how the prices compare.

Anyhow, this is steel, therefore a 30 kg package should not be that big.
