Love how it was just handed over for inspection without at least some basic cautionary speech like "don't touch the blade and try to see how sharp it is" and "don't lick it" etc. The TV guy thought $2500 was steep lol. I saw that episode when it originally aired, back when I still had a TV.

I loved the barehanded grab of the blade while removing the tsuka. The guy owned the sword for over 20 years and he still didn't know how to handle a sword.

And not to cross threads but it has a nice habaki :laughing:  

Don't you find that whenever the media cover something that you are knowledgeable about you find yourself wincing at the inaccuracies?

 

All the best.

Or me!

Just viewed a video, London dealer handing over a katana to a customer, cutting edge first. Then the customer drawing one of his own blades from a shira saya, on its side! Or am I just being pedantic?.
